Tom Browning Santas - Santa Classics
Santa Classics by Tom Browning. Beautiful Santa figurines based on Tom's wonderful paintings. This line of Santas was retired in 2006. Since there is no more production of these pieces they are beginning to sell out. Born in 1949, Tom Browning has been a professional artist since 1972.Although his true passion for art is best seen in his fine art genre paintings, he is perhaps best known for his wonderful images of Santa Claus. It's ironic that a commercial venture launched by Tom and his wife, Joyce, fifteen years ago created an entirely new market for Santa Claus and put Tom at the top when it comes to depicting the beloved icon both at work and play. Tom's treatment of these paintings as fine art was a key factor in their success and popularity. Tom has painted over eighty delightful scenes of Santa since 1984 when Arbor Green Publishers began printing greeting cards and prints. Tom continues to paint these enjoyable images of Santa. These designs are also licensed to manufacturers that feature them on many other products such as greeting cards, figurines and gift bags.
