“I am a self-taught artist and call my art ART FROM THE HEART.  I grew up on a farm in Switzerland where I spent most of my childhood outdoors. In 1976 I immigrated to the Flint area with my husband intending to stay for 1 or 2 years. 46 years later we are still here having raised 2 sons and enjoy 2 grandchildren. In the late 70‘s a friend invited me to participate in a pottery class at The Flint Institute of Art and so my introduction to the art world began. After working with clay for several years I felt inspired to try something new and bought colored pencils and paper and started drawing. From colored pencil I moved on to other media such as pastels and then to art markers which are my chosen tools as of now. I like to create joyful and colorful paintings that are inspired by the beauty of the natural world but also through meditation. Over the years I have exhibited through various art councils in the area. Some restaurants and have participated in art walk several times.”

Thomas Myers {Tom} is a native of Michigan. He spent his early years in Flint, and later moved to Davison where he graduated from high school. After being wounded in the Viet Nam War, he returned to the Flint area. He enrolled at Mott Community College and later received his B.S. in Education from Central Michigan University. Tom worked for General Motors for over 30 years and retired in 2000. Much like Grandma Moses, Tom realized an interest in and developed a talent for Art later in life. After joining most local painting groups he became interested in Oil Painting, in particular. Tom finds the versatility of Oil offers him a wide range of painting techniques, from Impressionism to realism. He has enjoyed trying different styles and techniques over the years. Tom’s art evokes images of homes, farms, and people of his own area. His love of family and home as well as found memories of the area are all present in his Paintings. None of his paintings are an exact representation of what he sees. For that he would take a Photograph. Tom’s paintings are more about mood and a certain warm feeling done with imagination and character. Tom has had Paintings on view at Flint Institute of Arts and Studio 23 in Bay City.
