The twenty-first catalog, Art of Substance, won an American Graphic Design award. Tom graduated from RIT with a fine arts degree in photography. He has been recognized for his extensive knowledge of contemporary art textiles and fiber sculpture and for his photography of fiber art. He has lectured on these subjects at museums and art programs in New York, California, Hawaii and elsewhere.
