Thomas has been creating and selling quality Koa wood sculptures in Hawaii since 1994. Tom's love of the ocean and it's abundant sea life, especially the turtles, inspires his beautiful wood carvings with the impression of motion and realism. Eventually, he started carving female figures, Hawaiian hula dancers, and many other subjects.

In 2012 Tom began selling his incredibly detailed pen and ink drawings, emphasizing Hawaiian sea turtles and tropical fish. Offering his Koa wood sculptures and sea life art to Hawaii residents and tourist alike,  Thomas now has his work in collections worldwide.
