Thomas Payne has been working as an illustrator for the last ten years and has recently entered the fine art field.  His paintings reflect a new direction which combines his skills as an artist with his life-long passion for sailing.

Tom primarily works in oil on canvas or acrylic on paper and enjoys painting scenes from modern racing sloops to working fishing boats.  At the 17th Annual International Marine Art Exhibition, Tom won the Museum Purchase Award at the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport; his entry “SEAFARER AND SERENA” is in the museum’s permanent collection.
