Since 1981, Tom Joyce has lived on the northern slopes of the Slieve Bloom mountains in the centre of Ireland. His life is heavily influenced by this mountain environment and his exploration of its moorlands, forests and river valleys provide the inspiration for much of his artwork, which is classical in style.

Though increasingly known for his landscape paintings of Slieve Bloom, in recent years Tom has been developing figurative and still life work.

Whatever the category of painting, careful composition, thoughtful choice of colour and the subtle use of light, creates an atmosphere of peace and harmony in his paintings that captures the viewer’s attention and imagination in a most satisfying way.

In recent years Tom’s work as a sculptor has been increasingly recognised and his public sculptures at Clonaslee National School have attracted much critical acclaim.

His paintings hang in private collections in Ireland, England, Italy, Greece Australia and the United States.
