Sutton-Smith, Tom

I grew up in Scotland and attended Edinburgh College of Art. Before moving to Canada in 1981 to find new challenges I pursued a career in advertising with Scotland’s leading agencies .
After a successful career in advertising, as an art director and creative director in Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg, I decided to fulfill a lifelong ambition by painting full-time.
Now repatriated in Scotland I work mainly in oil on canvas, on a broad range of subjects including portrait commissions. My work is exhibited in galleries in Scotland and across Canada.

My current work is inspired by my experiences in the many landscapes I have lived in and visited. The different lights, colours and vegitation of Scotland, Canada and France distilled into my vision of my present surroundings.
