The Art of Tom Strom & Jackee Sandelands-Strom

Jackee Sandelands-Strom and Tom Strom are an artistic couple working from their private studio, The Keep, in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Both artists are self-taught and work in a variety of mediums. Jackee is currently focusing on acrylic painting and has been working towards perfecting her hyper-realistic style. Most of her recent topics include hands and the stories that they have to tell. Her attention to detail in these pieces captures the lives worked in to the hands of each of her subjects. 

Tom's work has a focus on an illustration background and bounces between acrylic and watercolor paint, each giving a different feel to what he's doing. He uses imagery of nature and animals that are often combined to tell stories of life, death, and rebirth in different forms. They walk the line between being creepy and beautiful at the same time.    

The paintings in this show are a collection of what both artists are doing at the moment and a glimpse in to the future of what's to come. 

Tom Strom will be tattooing and exhibiting alongside Jackee at The London Tattoo Convention. Catch their exhibition in the North Dock Gallery, September 27-28-29th only at The London Tattoo Convention.
