Tom Browning 

Born in Ontario, Oregon in 1949, Tom Browning has been painting professionally since 1972. Starting out with western and wildlife as a choice of subject matter, Tom has had a multifaceted career that has provided many incredible paintings of many different subjects and mediums. But his love of the west has always been his biggest inspiration that has kept the western theme alive on his easel. Now working primarily in oils, Browning feels he is creating his strongest and most meaningful work.

In 1994 Tom wrote an instructional book for Northlight entitled 'Timeless Techniques for Better Oil Paintings' which was acclaimed by many schools and painting students as one of the best ever out on the market.
