Tommy’s “Leopard” is gorgeous. The detail is exquisite. The colors are carefully selected and blended. The ferocity and character of the animal are evident – it is bold.
Tommy is a prisoner who is in for life. He suffers from depression and anxiety. His art gives him purpose and at times appears to be a lifeline for him. He says that creating art that he sets free into our world is satisfying to him knowing he will never be free because of the choices he made.
