R. Tom Gilleon

( b. 1942 )

Artist Bio

Raised in Florida by his grandparents (his grandmother was a Cherokee), R. Tom Gilleon served in the United States Navy and is a Vietnam Veteran. He began his career as a technical illustrator for Pan American World Airways. Soon thereafter he moved to California where he worked for the Walt Disney Company in the Imagineering studio and led the design team that created the Epcot Center. In the early 80’s he moved to Montana to become a painter.

Over the past 30 years, R. Tom Gilleon has achieved impressive success and acceptance as a fine artist. Working in an impressionistic state, the bold colors and compelling lighting of his Native American subjects result in stunning art that captures the Spirit of the Great American West.
