Tom Rechsteiner, Hawthorne, Florida Member Since June 2011 Artist Statement Well I'll say a few things about myself. I'm an outdoor person, I love the beach, and fishing anywhere on any dock or beach is a lot of fun for me. I also fresh water fish all over Florida. You can classify me as a survivalist meaning I can camp on the beach or outdoors for awhile. Art to me is a way to express what I feel about a beach scene or nature through the use of pointillism or realism.
I utilize my camera and sketch pad daily in the field. I graduated from the University of Florida in business and music. I've enrolled in a few art classes at a college level and I've enjoyed every minute I implement these skills towards art projects. I'm taking a break from participating in any musical ensembles so I'm concentrating on art projects right now and in the future.
