Cross, Tom

Property categories:




Tom Cross' artwork is in a realm where science and art meet and mix. With its roots in ecology and folklore, Cross says his work is wildlife or nature art that has gone "just a bit awry." He combines ecological fact and fable with whimsical images and fuses traditional and unconventional techniques to convey the visions, dreams and realities of a world environmentally right with itself. With a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology from the University of Florida, Cross is uniquely qualified to employ his unusual and effective combination.

Tom's art has been published as fine art prints; appeared in books posters and magazines; been incorporated into a variety of products and shown in galleries and exhibits worldwide. He has authored numerous magazine articles and had several books published. His company, Tom Cross Inc., has collaborated on numerous national publication projects. He has created two lavishly illustrated, internationally published books, FAIRY GARDEN: Fairies of the Four Seasons and THE WAY OF WIZARDS.

A nationally recognized specialist in the study of coastal barrier island ecology, Cross has been honored with awards for his environmental activities as well as his art. He has served as a contributing author and artist for such organizations as the Cousteau Society, the National Estuary Program, the Nature Conservancy and the American Littoral Society. Cross has also served on the faculty of the Ringling School of Art and Design, teaching a variety of subjects from publication design to digital painting and drawing.
