Born in Ontario, Oregon in 1949, Tom Browning has been painting
professionally since 1972. Starting out with wildlife as a choice
of subject matter, Tom worked primarily in black and white using
a medium known as scratchboard. Learning to properly see values
and creating such a convincing sense of light have been instrumental
to Browning's success.
Now working primarily in oils, Tom's subject matter
takes in a wide scope that knows no boundaries. Still life and
figures, however, make up the majority of his work, and are
always the subjects in his workshops that he teaches around
the country each year.
Tom Browning became a member of the prestigious
Cowboy Artists of America in 2009, and he has won many awards
over the years. In June of 2009 he was awarded the Prix de West
Award at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum for
"Dawn of a New Day". Tom is also a member of the Portrait
Painters Society of America, and he has been a guest artist's
at the National Academy of Western Art and the Plein Air Painters
of America. He also participates in the Prix de West Show at
the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma
City, and the Quest for the West Show at the Eiteljorg Museum
in Indianapolis. The mural "The Adoration of the Christ
Child" for St. Mary's in Boise, Idaho was installed in
January of 2009.
