Oil On Board
Oriel-Y-Felin, St Davids

Thomas Haskett (1981 - ) lives and works in Pembokeshire, UK. He first studied in Kent, and then at Falmouth College of Arts in Cornwall.
He thrives on the constant inspiration provided by his new surroundings. Deeply rooted in the landscape, and the sea, his work is a unique view of the ancient buildings of the British Isles, the countryside they exist in and the flora and fauna that inhabit it. Working in a traditional 'En Plein Air' fashion,  primarily in oils or watercolours, Thomas’ work is representational, accurate, detailed, and painted with a vigor and verve that only working direct from life can imbue.
The colours, light and mood are therefore unique to the day on which his work is produced.
He exhibits throughout the UK and his work is collected worldwide with pieces throughout Europe, America and as far away as Australia and New Zealand.
