Biography

Printmaker and illustrator Tom Frost graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2001, returning to his home town of Bristol to work as an illustrator for a number of years.

In recent years he has worked with clients including The V&A, Perry's Cider, Art Angels, Freight Household Goods, Selvedge Magazine, Betty & Dupree, The Archivist and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. His work highlights a fascination for old matchboxes, stamps, folk art, tin toys, children's books and the natural world.
