About the Artist

Tom Seiz was born in Plainfield, New Jersey in 1946. His interest in art was apparent at an early age when he was given a set of pastels by his elementary teacher who encouraged his love of drawing and painting. Unable to pursue art courses in high school, Seiz rekindled his interest in art while attending William Paterson University as a biology major. After taking three art courses in college, Seiz won an art scholarship where he studied under Philips Simkin at the Art Foundation on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Since that time, Seiz has developed his own style of painting using acrylics to capture images of the Jersey Shore and various scenes in nature.

Recently, Seiz has won a number of art shows, including first place in the Plainfield Art Show in 2004, 2006 and 2008. Today he continues to show and sell his artwork throughout New Jersey. His paintings are available at many galleries across the state.
