“What is really so very important about Tom’s artwork is that his pieces are one-of-a-kind…no two are remotely alike. Adding to that his ability to bring feeling, life and emotion to the wood makes Tom’s work distinctly exceptional.”
"Thomas Dean's use of exotic woods give his work creative sculptural appeal, whilst his attention to detail and craftsmanship emphasizes his deep understanding of the natural world, that he is portraying in his work. I am happy to give my recommendation's to all that see his work."
“We have been collecting high quality original Western art for many years. I recently was privileged to obtain and purchase “Big Medicine”,an amazing bronze bison skull in a beautiful turquoise patina. Truly unbelievable! It was a pleasure to interact and work with Tom, from the time he was passionately explaining his art until the point we were sending him pictures of it prominently displayed in our home. Tom is an incredible artist and his work is a great addition to anyone’s collection.”
“I had recently read about an artist in Cowboys&Indians magazine named Tom Dean. Without question – as described in C&I – his artwork is exceptional. I now own one of Tom’s intricately carved fish sculptures. That piece now resides in my Seattle home and is without question, the centerpiece of immediate focus in our home. Thank you Tom.”
“I love to fish more than almost anything. Seeing one of Tom Dean’s carvings makes me think of fishing. He is a great artist!”
"I have been collecting Western / Wildlife art for the past 35 years and it has been a wonderful journey – the people you meet is one of the greatest benefits & Tom Dean is one of those. Art takes many forms and I believe Tom has captured the essence of the fish and its’ environment as his sculptures come alive right before your eyes through his creative and talented hands. Tom’s art will stand the test of time and become , in my opinion, true” legacy” art objects to be respected and handed down for the enjoyment of future generations"
