Biography from a third party submitted on 05/23/2008:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

British artist Thomas Fairfax was born in Macclesfield, Cheshire in 1960.  When asked how long he has been painting, his prompt reply is “for as long as I can remember.”

After graduating from college, Fairfax began work as a commercial artist.  His first full time job was with a Manchester Graphics & Photography Agency.  However, Fairfax remained at the job for only a year.  He made the decision to pursue a career as a wildlife painter.

Fairfax worked as a freelance photo retoucher and at the same time he studied the old masters.  His favorites were DaVinci, Titian, and Turner and in order to discover as much as possible about their techniques, he would sometimes copy selected paintings. Although this process could take him as long as two years, he was determined to gather as much information and knowledge as possible.

Fairfax’s study, however, did not diminish his first love of painting animal subject matter, particularly canines, felines, and wildlife.  The influence of his study is revealed in his highly detailed work.
