Currently providing maternity cover for the Events Manager, Tom is responsible for facilitating the Centre's academic activities. This involves supporting the Director for Research in the running of an engaging programme of scholarly events, including research seminars, research lunches, workshops, symposia and conferences, all of which are designed to showcase and stimulate original research into the history of British art and architecture. 

Prior to joining the Paul Mellon Centre, Tom worked within the Adult Learning Teams of both the Royal Academy of Art and the National Portrait Gallery, programming and delivering a diverse range of art focussed events.

Tom spent time in Italy learning traditional techniques in both painting and sculpture, and now specialises in portraiture on a miniature scale. He holds a BA in Fine Art from Newcastle University.
