Thomas Taneyhill is a fine artist and illustrator. With an emphasis on classical and art history, he earned his BA from the University of California, Berkeley. He perfected his style while attending the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
In 2002, after spending several years as a successful illustrator, Taneyhill began a series of landscape paintings. Demand for his landscapes depicting the golden California hills grew quickly, and his artwork can now be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.
A resident of Lafayette, California, Taneyhill lives with his wife, daughter, and Border Collie.
In my experience, the art of being an illustrator is the ability to create within the parameters set by the client. The fine artist attempts to make art itself an individual statement. I see my own artistic vision as a union of both disciplines.
Presently, I find great inspiration in the landscape of Northern California. With a painting style developed during my time as an illustrator, I attempt to portray the subject in a way that evokes a sense of beauty. However, my greatest challenge is to find the elusive quality of timelessness hidden within a modern landscape.
