Norwich - posted May, 22 2013
NORWICH- Roy Tookes is originally from Shreveport, La. He moved to Norwich after a brief stint in Colchester, and returns home to Louisiana now and then, but calls Norwich his home. He started painting in the 6th grade and now there is no stopping him. He visits the “three rivers” in Norwich and picks up driftwood, rocks and found objects and turns them into art. He also does wood burning and works in all the different mediums in painting. His visits to the Thames, Yantic and Shetucket rivers yield a wide array of inspirational objects. His show is going to run at the TRCC Art Galley June 4 to Aug. 6. He will have many pieces for sale to the public and they are modestly priced. Roy is a delight, ready to be discovered!
