R. Tom Gilleon was born in Florida. He lived in the Augusta area for several years. Career accomplishments include a long term ongoing relationship with Walt Disney’s theme park design group as a conceptual illustrator and designer. He has done movie work, including matte paintings for Warren Beatty’s “Dick Tracy”.
Tom is versatile in all media, though oil and watercolor are his favorite. He believes “simplicity and strength of design are the keys to fine art. Color, value, composition and line are of paramount importance.” His paintings hang in collections of NASA, USAF, and the Disney organization.
