A "not-so-recent" picture of Tom Messina
Tom Messina was born in Fayettville, North Carolina. Soon after his birth he moved to Long Island, New York, where he spent his growing years. Messina comes from a long line of artists, mostly sculptors, learning and weilding their craft in Italy, where part of his family still dwells. Always having an interest in pen and pencil illustration, Messina attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y where he majored in Fine Arts. While at Pratt, he began work in realist and abstract painting, in both watercolors and acrylics. He still remains eclectic and versitile in his choice of mediums today.

In 1975 Messina married his wife Gayle, with whom he has raised 2 children, both boys. The Messina's now have two grandchildren. He and his wife are both local residents of Pine Island, Florida, having moved here in 1991.

Hobbies & Interests:
Messina has always had a calling to water, which explains his love of fishing, boating and canoeing. On top of being an avid outdoorsman, he loves chess and working with computers.

Professional Background:
Messina is the president of Total Concept, Inc., a graphic arts studio located at 2502 Second Street, Suite 101, Fort Myers, Florida. Blending his love of the arts and technology, Messina opened the business in 1981 after working as an art director and designer in New York for 2 years.
