About Thomas Akers

Thomas (Tom) Akers, b: 1942 is an award winning Virginia artist whose family has longstanding roots in that state and has included some noted painters. He studied art and painting at American University, Washington, DC; and has a background as an illustrator and forensic artist. Although having had a continuing personal occupation with fine art, he nevertheless returned relatively late to its painting in earnest.

Usually painting in watercolors and acrylics, his works are realistic but reflect the artist's particular regard for the Impressionist and American Ashcan schools in both his choices of subjects for painting and their style of rendering.

Works by the artist are in private and corporate collections in the United States and England. He is currently represented by the Atlanta Art Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia & Studio Eleven in Lexington, Virginia. He is also a current artist member of the Academy of Fine Arts at Lynchburg, Virginia and is listed in the World Artist Directory.
