Tom Goldenberg


As an Artist, I believe in changing the way one sees the landscape by using the power and vitality of Painting and Drawing. I accomplish this by translating onto canvas the intellectual and sensorial impact of the natural world as I see it. I choose to grind my pigments by hand to have the consistency of color saturation and intensity needed to translate what I see into a first-hand experience: evoking joy and pleasure in those viewing my work.
