R. Taneyhill is a fine artist and illustrator. With an emphasis
on classical and art history, Tom earned his Bachelor of Arts degree
from the University of California, Berkeley. While attending the
Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Tom perfected his style.
spending several years as a successful illustrator, Tom began his
own series of work in 2002. Demand for his landscape paintings grew
quickly. Tom's work can now be found in private and corporate collections.
my experience, the art of being an illustrator is the ability to
create within the parameters set by the client. The fine artist
attempts to make art itself an individual statement. I see my own
artistic vision as a union of both disciplines.
I find great inspiration in the landscape of Northern California.
With a painting style developed during my time as an illustrator,
I attempt to portray the subject in a way that evokes a sense of
beauty. However, my greatest challenge is to find the elusive quality
of timelessness hidden within a modern landscape."
