Thomas Hill Frost

Thomas Hill Frost

(American, b. 1938)

 

Thomas Frost became interested in art at a very young age, being the great, great, grandson of Thomas Hill. He was taken under the wing of his sixth grade teacher, Gerald Smith, even to the point of taking him to the Adult School art class he taught. Gerald Smith evidently thought that Frost at the age of 11 showed that he had potential. From there on in Frost started accumulating award after award.

 

Frost's main interest is in capturing the American West, the same west his grandfather captured so admirably. Living in the Sierras Nevada Mountains encourages and inspires this artist to paint beautiful landscapes and mountain scenes. Some of the artist's who have inspired Frost to take up the endeavor of painting are Thomas Hill, Keith, Bierstadt and Frederic Church.
