LAGUNA BEACH Oil painter Tom Swimm’s LightScapes are collected throughout the world and his work is exhibited in galleries in Laguna Beach, Carmel, Hawaii, Florida and Colorado.

Swimm, who has exhibited at the Festival of Arts for 30 years, is known for his exceptional use of light and color. Many who view his artwork, at first glance, think they are looking at a photograph.
