Thom Ricks has been a professional artist his entire life. Being loyal to his career and curious about the world, he has traveled to all corners of the globe, sketching and painting his way around the world many times. While enjoying living this creative life he has found his way into many collection in and around his home in the Texas Hill Country as well as throughout the US. Thom loves to sketch on location and then return to his studio to work on the canvases. He translates the spirit of these locations on canvas in compositional and tonal patters much like a musical score.
