Hello, my name is Tom Townsey.
I'm a Norwegian/Danish artist with a great French heart.
My artwork is inspired by many years of travelling around the Côte d'Azur in France.
I have a profound passion for the French cities and their cultural sights, which have so much history.
Hopefully I can contribute to renew the magnificence of these fantastic cultural treasures by displaying them in a new light. And perhaps give you a way to connect with a special memorie of a beloved place at the Côte d'Azur.
We have all been giving this one wonderful life. The responsibility to get the maximum out of it, is entirely upon ourselves.
When I was about to turn 60, I decided to step outside of the addictive treadmill, that we all know to well, and start a new way of living. A way where I was in charge and where I could combine my interests for travelling with my interest in the French culture and making artwork.
Today I understand much better why so many painters - especially the great painters like Picasso, Chagall and Matisse - were drawn to the Côte d'Azur. The ambient light and the atmosphere at the beautiful coastline is just so inspiring and captivating.
And these 3 painters in particular together with Fernand Léger has inspired me to my style of artwork - an eclectic composure of styles in both time and colors.
I hope you'll find an art print or poster that you fancy and would like to hang it in your space - or perhaps give it as a present.
Cordialement / Sincerely
