Thomas Perceval is an Artist based on the border of mid Wales and Herefordshire, where he was born and grew up. The experience of living at this convergence of Wales and England has strongly influenced his work. He studied a Foundation in Arts at Hereford Art College, followed by BA Drawing at Camberwell College of Arts in London.
After returning to the countryside, he became re-engaged with the splendor and beauty of the natural world. He decided to capture the spirit, energy and character of Trees, by combining drawing techniques with laser technology. The works are meticulously created and express the serenity and peace, found in the shape and form of Trees.
The Tree drawings are etched and engraved into various woods and are mounted onto frames which protect the back and sides of the picture. All colouring is done via the burning process only. Although each work is a Limited Edition, the individual wood grain pattern of each edition is an integral part of the artwork. No two editions are exactly the same.
Thomas’s work has been exhibited in various exhibitions including at The Royal West of England Academy, Bristol and La Galleria Pall Mall, London.
