At 90 years young, Tom Bailey is still enjoying his trade! With a BA from Texas Tech he had a career as a freelance illustrator from 1964-1989. “After that things really got interesting! I had originally wanted to be an architect but I couldn’t pass Algebra so I changed to art! I always wanted to paint though; just paint that perfect piece of art. I’m still trying, I love working in oils and trying something new each day.” Tom, your trials look pretty close to perfect! Tom spent from 1989 – 1993 traveling and painting in Mexico where he developed his unique loose style.
