Tom has studied Art & Design in the UK and worked for several years in Advertising and Marketing, before becoming a Creative Director on a international level. However... a passion for art took over Tom's love for Creative Marketing. Tom began working as an abstract expressionist,
whilst performing as a singer song writer in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Upon his return to the UK, Tom decided to change his focus and moved into the world of Wild Life Art and became recognised as one of the UKs leading Bird Artists in Britain.
Tom is a self-taught artist working in his own studio in a small Cheshire village on the border of England and Wales in a 18th century cottage which he has renovated himself, close to the Roman City of Chester.
Tom has also had a collaborative photographic exhibition with his brother Dave called Beautiful Wreck - 2012/13 on location in UTAH, USA. As an artist, he has produced Art Installations, based on his overnight stay in the desert of the Valley of Fire, in Nevada, USA, then portrayed this by painting on 10 foot by 8 foot canvases and placed them back in to the environment, only to take photographs of the installations.
After a busy schedule in producing, performing live music for several years, Tom has decided to balance his art with his music.
Tom continues to produce music and art. His new artwork will be coming soon and will be available to view and buy on line.
Tom Monahan - ARTIST
I've realized that producing visual art could be a much more relaxing and pressure-less creative outlet for me than writing, producing music and performing. Talking with other musicians, it seems the same thing is often true for them—However there is a definite tie between my music and visual art, but that they serve as different kinds of therapy for my soul.
So many of my favorite songwriters have found that there’s more than one way to scratch that creative itch. which includes Joni Mitchell, John Mellencamp, Ronnie Wood, Bob Dylan, Ani Difranco, Moby, Bryan Adams, Julian Lennon, Yoko Ono and Jon Langford..... to name but a few.

Like so many artists these days I've recently started selling my own art and music online it helps it to be more affordable to those collectors or one off art/listeners to purchase without paying extra gallery commissions and I get to build a relationship with whom buys on a more personal level.
I started in my early thirties full time, then on and off throughout my life.
I do enjoy most methods and movements. I am a huge fan of The Impressionists, Abstract Expressionists, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Picasso.
You can probably see that reflected in the way I use colors and ordinary objects. but like most people certain artists/movements just move me more than others it can be endless,
I always tend to go back to the impressionists and abstract expressionists.
I have always turned to the empty canvass when I find music a struggle emotionally, professionally and creatively.
This isn't an easy question to answer? But I will do my best on how I see it. Here goes.....
My art is a powerful form of expression not only for me who's created it, but also for those who own it. Art allows people to express their individuality and to represent their beliefs, feelings, hopes, convictions and philosophies in social, visual and redeeming ways.
Art encourages people to ask questions, introspect, think about new ideas, experience fresh new perspectives and most importantly, it encourages us to take brief moments out of our busy lives to reflect on more than just the mundanities of our daily existences.
Phew... pretty deep hey? well there ya go! I hope this answer helps?
