Tom Tuley came to art late in life. After a 38-year newspaper career (the last 12 years as editor of the two daily newspapers in Evansville, IN) he took early retirement at age 55 and three years later moved to Brown County. He studied art there under Brown County artist Sandee Hazelbaker Russell...and, viola, three years and 97 paintings later was invited to become a member of the Brown County Art Gallery's Artists Association.
Tuley works in both watercolor and pastel and paints a variety of subjects--from rural and urban landscapes to flowers, animals and water. His favorite subject, however, is old barns--the older and more dilapidated the better. He now lives in Whitestown, IN and sells his work at the Sullivan Munce Cultural Center in Zionsville as well as the Brown County Art Gallery.
