A long time resident of Southern Chester County and the Brandywine Valley, Tom DeMott has been involved in one way or another with fine art and commercial art for about 40 years. His home is outside of Oxford, Pennsylvania where he lives with his wife Stephanie and their three children. He is an avid naturalist with an emphasis on amateur astronomy and fishing.
After graduating from the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, Mr. DeMott then went on to attend Pennsylvania State University. During that time he majored in Graphic Art and received his Bachelor's Degree in Art.
Upon completion of school, Tom made a decision to pursue a career in advertising. For over 35 years he has developed creative concepts for businesses, government, industrial firms and educational institutions, both regional and national. His illustrations and graphic designs have appeared in brochures, books, advertisements, magazines and on billboards, annual report covers, video and slide presentations.
At this point in his career, he has mastered virtually every phase of graphics and commercial art. His award winning designs and illustrations have been used by companies such as Sun Oil, Du Pont, Rorer, Hercules, Texaco, Lenape Forge, General Electric, Roy F. Weston and many others. The artist is currently an illustrator for the federal government at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, and also a freelance illustrator and graphic designer.
In the past few years, Tom has participated in many of the region's juried, invitational and gallery art exhibits. A brief list of these shows include Penn State's Exhibit, Chadd's Ford Days, Hockessin Art Festival, New Castle's Art-On-The- Green, Chadd's Ford Mayfair and many others.
As a final note, Mr. DeMott explains, ”At this point in my career I want to create paintings that include quality design, color and traditional realism. Since there are many notable artists in this region now, someone like myself must strive for added craftsmanship and innovation.”
