Tom Greenshields

Was born in 1915 on the family farm in Devon. He was the grandson of the well known Victorian painter Edouard van Goethem whose distinctive watercolours have been reproduced worldwide. Tom studied at the Slade School of Art in London going on to exhibit at the Royal Academy. During the second World War he was awarded the Military Cross and was wounded in both legs. After the war he brought his German wife back to England and worked on the family farm. After an accident he lost the use of his right hand and had to transfer his sculpting and drawing skills to his left hand which he managed successfully and began to devote all his time to his art. All Tom’s sculptures are taken from life. The initial sculpture is created in clay and a mould is then made from which an exact resin marble copy is produced. This becomes the master from which all resin bronzes are made. Tom died in 1994. The youngest of his five children, Maria, is also a sculptor.
