Tom graduated in Graphic Design in 1977 and turned to printmaking in 1984. While lino-cuts are his preferred medium, Tom also paints in various other media.
He opened “The Tom Davidson Gallery” at Earlston in the heart of the Scottish Borders in 1995. Tom’s work is in private collections all around the world as well as nearer home in the collections of Paintings in Hospitals (Scotland), The Houses of Parliament, Floors Castle and Durham University. Tom Davidson’s lino-cuts are produced from a single block of linoleum, using a reduction process, printing each colour on top of the previous colour, working from light to dark.
All of Tom’s works are hand-drawn or cut and printed by the artist. Prints are produced in limited editions of between twenty and thirty.
