          Back to DIRECTORY


Tom  was born and lived in Massachusetts for fifty (50) years. After graduating from Rhode Island School of Photography, he owned and operated a full service photography studio for twenty-five ( 25 ) years. Since moving to the Carolinas, he spends most of his time doing fine art photography, but is still available for commissioned portrait work.

CONGRATULATIONS, Tom! Tom recently received Second Place and a Merit Award at the 2017 Gaston County Art Guild Photography Show at the Arts on Main Gallery in Gastonia, NC.

Tom now resides in Mount Holly, N C.




Bonita is a Mount Holly, N.C. artist, specializinig in detailed pencil drawings. Although having worked in acrylic, oil and other media, she finds the greatest pleasure and challenge in the use of graphite pencil on paper, the most simple tools of art.

For the past year, she has focused primarily on musician drawings, bringing together her love of music and of art. Her original drawings and art prints can be found in homes across the U. S. and Europe. Working strictly from photos, she also creates drawings of other subjects: commissioned portraits, animals and structures.
