"Regardless of the medium, there is a readily identifiable Simpson style, a vocabulary of forms, and a palette that are unmistakable.  Whether he is making a piece of furniture or forms, or purely nonfunctional object, whether it is two dimensional or three, whether is monumental or intimate in size, Simpson's forms are organic and voluptuous."

TOMMY SIMPSON’s artwork transcends craftsmanship, fine art, and whimsy.  He is an “imaginist” who has worked in nearly every medium, including; woodworking, painting, printmaking, clay, woodcarving, bookmaking, jewelry, and even prose. In each work of art the artist “puzzles together” the his personal and cultural references into a signature blend of joyfulness and subtle commentary.  “The ultimate goal, “Tommy says, “is to bring the artwork to life, so that the viewer can identify the human spirit behind the work, and experience its poetry.”
