Thomas EasleyBack to Artists
Thomas Easley was born in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains where he spent his youth enjoying the deep woods and grand vistas in and around the Lake Tahoe basin.
Easley did not go to art school. He is a self-taught artist whose successful career spanning 30 years and three continents has taken him from the snow capped Sierras of his childhood to the verdant hills of England, the canals of Venice and the banks of the holy Ganges in India.
Each location has provided Easley with insight for his inquisitive mind and inspirationfor his blend of painting styles and techniques: In England he painted illuminations, miniatures and portraits, in Italy he painted nudes, architectural landscapes and floral still life, India’s mysticism made him delve into dimensional realism, surrealism and allegorical works.
Since Easley’s return to the United States, he has focused on wine still life paintings that are reminiscent of the warmly lit rich style of European masters and energetic roosters filled with attitude and elegance. He also paints textured cityscapes, landscapes and sensual nudes in his Extreme Impressionism style.
Easley lives in the Hudson Valley with his wife and two sons.
