About Tom Gilleon
Born 1942  "While he has always worked as a fine artist, Tom Gilleon had a career that began years ago in the commercial field and as an illustrator for NASA's Apollo Program. He has since spent many years working with Disney and other theme park design groups as both a designer and illustrator.  Working with some of the great motion picture art directors there, has led to his involvement in the motion picture industry as well, where he has worked as an illustrator and storyboard artist on films such as the Disney movie, Dick Tracy.

His diverse assignments have led to his living in all four corners of the country. Currently residing near Cascade, Montana, Gilleon is surrounded by inspiration for his art.  His clean style challenges the imagination and has garnered a strong following.  His perceptions of reality feature bold luminous color and economy of detail.  His trademark tipi paintings suggest a mythical glow as if illuminated by the moon or glowing embers within.

Tom Gilleon and his painting, Yellow Leaves Moon were selected as the featured artist and painting for the 2009 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival.  Star Lodge was a 48" X 48" oil painting by Gilleon chosen for the 2005 January issue of Southwest Art magazine."
