I paint the spectrum of light, the energy of love. I paint to convey the beauty of humanity and the natural world, of Creation.


Tom Boatright, Visionary Artist

Tom began painting through a series of visionary angelic experiences in which he received a flood of light - the essence of love. He paints to convey this energy, the beauty of humanity and nature. His large scale abstract impressionism is meant to provoke and engage on a deep subconscious level. His paintings are emotive, the essence of grace. 


​Tom's subject matter is the natural world and humanity. Tom paints en plein air outside his studio at the ponds of his beautiful nature preserve. Created in a flow state of fluid consciousness, Tom's paintings are aesthetically beautiful but the power is in the light they imbue which is contained within his paints. His paintings are luminous.


Tom's painting range from subtle hues with metal accents to vibrant explosive colors. He creates his paints for each series.


As a collector I appreciate Tom's art and the investment. We commissioned a series for the hotel and for our home.

Luxury is when it seems flawless when you reach the right balance between all elements.
Jean Louis-Denoit



Tom has a form of synesthesia and experiences sound as color. He paints in a resonance chamber, the Starlit Hall. Inspired by the vibration of the music and the natural world, he paints in a fluid state of consciousness, entering the etheric realms of sound and light. The hall is painted as Heaven and Earth, symbolic of the exquisite harmony of Creation.


Clients are invited to tour the studio gallery in Olympia. The 100 acre estate is being renovated and will reopen June 1st. It features labyrinths, an organic farm, nature trails, a retreat center as well as arts and crafts studios.

Bespoke commissions are often reviewed on site prior to shipping.

Our soul is composed of harmony.
Leonardo da Vinci

Using the psychology and physiology of color and form, Anna creates harmonious environments. Color is not a property of objects, contrary to their appearance, but rather how we perceive light. What we actually see are wavelengths of light. Color is essentially energy. Tom's paintings display a mastery of light. They elevate energy. 

We appreciate that the art should align to the design and intention for the space. We are confident that we can incorporate fine art that will provoke the imagination and transform the space. We use our industry background and inspired artists to produce high vibrational, beautiful environments.

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.
