Thomas R. Colletta was born in Buffalo, New York in April of 1952, and grew up in the nearby Town of Tonawanda.
Thomas received his first set of oil paints in the eighth grade. Moving to Hartford, Connecticut in 1978, Thomas devoted himself to painting full time. In 1979 he began exhibiting his work with the Different Drummer Gallery, while accepting illustration commissions from publishing firms in Boston and New York. Almost exclusively his canvases depicted historic, urban landscapes – titled aptly by one critic as “pictorial time machines.”
Exploring the possibilities of expressing these objects in paint continues to be his focus at the easel. Thomas, gratefully, lives and works in beautiful San Francisco, California.
