"... the beauty of a Darro woman is overpowering." So says ART OF THE WEST magazine in an article on Arizona artist, Tom Darro.

Raised in an artistically rich atmosphere, Tom has spent his entire life in the world of the arts. His father, Peter Darro, is a renowned painter and sculptor and a longtime contributor to Hallmark. His mother, Ann Darro, was an opera singer with the Chicago Civic Opera. In addition, three of Tom's uncles served as art directors for various organizations.

Born in Chicago, Tom opted not to take an offered scholarship to the Chicago Art Institute and instead headed for New York City. While there, he began his education in the intricacies of the art world.

Later, Tom took the opportunity to move to Los Angeles to concentrate on his art studies. For over two years he took private lessons from European trained painter Theodore Lukitz at his studio and workshop. He then studied color theory under artist Christian Title for another four years.

In 1985, Tom selected Arizona as the place for his home and studio. It was here that Tom began to use the inherent qualities of the West - its beauty and energy - as the vehicle for artistic expression. The backdrops of romantic landscapes, for which Tom constantly searches, help him capture the beauty and sensuality of his subjects.

The trademark of Tom's work is the soft play of light, either early morning or just before sunset, against the delicate features of his subjects. His compositions have a unique harmony of color few artists ever find. Although much of Tom's work has featured women, he has developed an outstanding ability to capture the essence of Native American men and children. He has become highly adept at painting the human experience of his subjects.
