Tom Hefko Originally from north central Wisconsin, Tom grew up working in his family's business, growing flowers in greenhouses and fields. He learned about the beauty of nature and the workings of nature from his grandfather and parents, and many others. Hiking and camping in the countryside of Wisconsin amplified his love of the natural world. Exploration of the inner worlds of the mind and soul has also always been part of his work.

He experimented with many facets of and kinds of art. Learning drawing, calligraphy, watercolor painting, architectural drawing, asian approaches to drawing and painting and calligraphy, classical and post-impressionist painting, etc. Experimenting with abstract expressionist oils culminated with his first one-man show, in high school. From 1967 - 1970, he studied art at Stout University and at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, learning design, life drawing, etc., and taking up acrylic painting. He went on to work in many styles and media, showing at art fairs, streetside, shops, restaurants, and galleries. He participated in group shows as well and had many one-man shows and several retrospectives.

Today he lives and works at his studio in the French Quarter of New Orleans, working with photography, painting in various media and styles, and exploring the possibilities of digital tools.
