Art Dealer / Artist

About Me

My background

Thom Duffy is an art dealer as well as a studio trained artist specializing in water medium paintings of watercolor and acrylics. His contemporary art gallery features figurative based works and subjects include portraits, still life, landscape and cityscapes - mostly Philadelphia which is where he resides. His color palette is rich and vibrant and boldly applied with energetic brush strokes. His body of work speaks to his love for nature and admiration of the American Modernists painters of the 1920 through the late 1940s.   
Thom's paintings have been included in several juried art exhibitions in Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs. The Wayne Art Center, Philadelphia Sketch Club, and William Way Community Center and recently the DaVinci Art Alliance. His work has received awards and honors in previously mentioned institutions.
