Tom Voyce (born 1989) is an artist from the UK. Trained in Fine Art at Aberystwyth University School of Art in Wales, specialising in drawing and painting. He completed a Master’s degree shortly afterwards allowing him to refine his practice while working and teaching.
In 2017 Tom participated on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year, where his powerful and distinctive landscapes thrilled the judges. He went on to win the competition and claim the prize of a £10,000 commission from the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London, where he was required to paint the view from the legendary playwright Noel Coward’s home in Jamaica.
Since then, Tom has gone on to produce a whole series of artworks based on his visit to Jamaica, as well as continuing to further his own practice through still life’s, interiors and various other semi abstract landscapes that are fundamental to his work. Tom has very recently completed a number of art residencies in New Zealand and Australia in search for new subject matter. His journey has also taken in visits to cities across Canada and the US as well as the islands of Fiji – befitting of his favourite subject matter; places of transit.
