Born in Buenos Aires, I grew up immersed in energy and color, inspired by the people, the art and architecture, the variance, intricacies and connections of colors and patterns. Today, with my Argentinean roots embedded in my soul, I employ an array of techniques to create an impressionistic series of autobiographical works.

I spend a lot of time in nature observing plants, the environment, and natures cycles. While in or out of the studio, I'm creating both complex and compact environments that enliven personal residences, gallery walls, and city streets. In work ranging from large scale sculptural installations, and living compilations, to miniature assemblage and mixed media works on paper, nature is my rubric and my compass. This is the way I make connections between human interests and the environment that surrounds us. 

Simultaneously, nature is my metaphor and material. Grafting together a variety of flat and dimensional elements is not uncommon in my practice.
In different ways, I'll incorporate earth, vines, flowers, roots, seeds, pigment, and wax into sculpture, and mixed media works on paper, more akin to assemblage. Nature and plants frequently act as metaphors for our human experience as they are passively or overtly layered or stitched amidst found imagery, maps, photographs, and words.

These paintings are a result of an intimate process of creating. These works are meditative, reflective, physical, emotional and spiritual.

In his mixed media work, Tom Herbert explores various concepts of abstraction through the use of repeated pattens and shapes. His use of fractured elements to create designs gives his work an kinetic energy that keeps the viewers eye engaged.
