Tom Greenshields ~ Sculptor (1915 - 1994)
Tom Greenshields was a versatile painter and draughtsman but this site is dedicated to his figurative nude sculpture for which he has become admired and appreciated by collectors worldwide.
His style is instantly recognizable, being both natural and sensual, reflecting his deep appreciation and knowledge of the human form.
Tom Greenshields was born in 1915, the grandson of the Victorian painter Edouard Van Goethem. He attended the Slade School of Art and it was here that he received a classical training in drawing and anatomy which was to fuel his life long artistic interest and passion in representing the human body.
In 1980 he lost the use of his right hand in a farming accident. Undeterred, and with great courage, he transferred his artistic skills to his left hand and went on to produce some of his finest figurative sculptures.
