Tom Genders
Painter, teacher and member of the Arborealists group 


I have a passion for the natural world and my work is  particularly focused upon trees and gardens.

I paint what I want to, things I believe in and feel passionate about. 

I sketch and paint on location, often small oil or watercolour studies which inform the colours and compositions of larger studio pieces in oil.

I spent extended time in Canada in my teens and twenties and the wilderness there had a profound effect on me.  I now look for pockets of wilderness in the over-tidy countryside around my  home.  I have been influenced by a group of Canadian painters called the Group of Seven and also the work of Gustav Klimt and John singer Sargent to name a few.

I find great enjoyment in playing with ceramics, charcoal and all kinds of other media, my teaching allows me to indulge in lots of different media and techniques. I currently teach at  The Croft school
