About the Artist

Thomas M Thurston's headshot taken at Loch Lomond.Hi there! My name is Thomas Thurston and I am a fine art and landscape photographer based out of New Jersey, USA.

My mission as an artist is to share my interpretation of the world around us. Life is precious, and taking in the beauty of mother nature can be an uplifting experience.

It is my service to share my love of the outdoors with each and every one of you and in that process, I hope to brighten a gloomy day, help slow down a hectic lifestyle, or just put a smile on your face with each passing glance at my work.

A little background about me… well, I have always loved the outdoors, even as a kid. I remember those long and tireless days in the summer with no responsibilities. You know, when there wasn’t a care in the world and each day brought new adventure.

I found paths in the woods around my local town that led to unknown discoveries like lush, green tree moss or rock filled streams that seemed to flow on forever.  It wasn’t before long that I got lost in the moment and was late for dinner.  It’s those memories that keep me engaged and push me to keep exploring mother earth.

My vision is pure; I see beauty in anything and will try to bring out the best in everything I see or do.

My intention is to move you. Not move you in the physical sense, but to emotionally connect with you through my work.  Ultimately, I wish that my artistic creations will bring joy to you and those around you.

Design Through My Eyes

As an artist, I am forever immersed in shapes, textures, and the colors around me. This immersion has created a love for design that extends into my every day life whether that means a living space design or the engineering of a product like a car, computer, or fine writing instrument.

My taste in interior design is eclectic – I tend to combine styles from Contemporary, Arts and Crafts, and Country into one well thought out design. I enjoy clean lines with color punch from contemporary style and the natural materials and textures that make up Arts and Crafts design.

Product design must be functional, refined, and user-friendly like the brands of Holtkötter lighting, Apple Computers, Herman Miller, and BMW. I definitely have a soft spot for German engineering.

Fun Facts & Other Interests

My free time is spent reading up on the latest technology and tinkering with my computer.

I’m also a seasoned software developer with 10 years of experience that holds a B.S. in computer science with a minor in mathematics from Virginia Tech.

Other interests include in no particular order:

  • Mountain biking
  • Snowboarding
  • Roasting coffee beans and forever searching for the perfect cup

Personal Photos

Some of these are candids of me working in the field; others are environmental portraits — nearly all of them were taken by my other half. Just click a thumbnail to enlarge the photo to its real size.
