T.M. Glass combines state-of-the-art digital photography and digital painting to create portraits of flowers that are then printed in limited edition at very high resolution. Although the result may echo historical still-life painting, Glass has fully embraced technology and the latest digital tools available to mix colours, collage pieces of her canvas together, and refine her photographs with digital rather than physical brushstrokes. The artist's still-life flower series includes flowers from renowned gardens around the world, and fine vases & other vessels from museums and distinguished collections.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
T.M. Glass generates limited edition archival pigment prints on archival Italian rag paper.
The latest evolution in the ever-changing art world combines cutting-edge digital photographic technology with traditional painting techniques.
T.M. Glass’ hyper-real creations are constructed in a computer with digital input from a high resolution, 150 megapixel prototype Danish camera and a digital painting tablet that enables the artist to paint with techniques used by 17th, 18th, and 19th century artists.
This combination harnesses an emerging medium in bold new ways to create gorgeous, oversized still life paintings featuring lushly-colored flowers masterfully arranged in intricate vases that appear three-dimensional.
Glass is inspired by the rich colors found in nature and has developed a unique color palate – that doesn’t include primary colors – and employs color theory to skillfully mix the hues on the computer.
In the artist's studio a large format six foot digital printer is connected to the computer, where T.M. personally prints each picture there to ensure that each archival pigment print is perfect.
