Tom Bender

Tom is a native Texan whose life journey took him to the Midwest, the Southwest, Alaska, Maine and finally back to Texas. Tom’s training was thanks to a fortuitous collection of mentors. His first mentor taught him to see the details in the reflections and the shadows and how to capture those details on film.  Tom developed a fascination with reflections and Maine proved to be a reflection wonderland with all  the still water. When he moved to Wimberley he moved into Digital Photo Art, many pieces are surreal.   The consummate artist, not satisfied with only capturing art through a camera’s lens, and manipulating many of those images with the computer mouse, Tom has ventured into additional artistic endeavors. He is now oil painting and his paintings reflect human creation in harmony with nature. Tom’s sense of humor is evident in his finished work. Some images raise questions, some will pull your leg and some will tug at your heart. He is a displaying artist in photography in the New Braunfels Art League Gallery since 2007. He was juried in as a displaying artist in oil painting in November of 2017. He also is a member of the Wimberley Valley Art League  and is a displaying artist at Art on 12.   You may view his images at
