Tom Maakestad


Tom Maakestad works and lives in Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota, where he has maintained a studio for the past sixteen years.  Raised in a neighborhood of farmers and surrounded by a vibrant artistic and intellectual community in Northfield, Minnesota, Tom has always been drawn to the hills and valleys of this lush, midwestern region.


Tom credits his most recent paintings … the rural landscape as seen from an aerial perspective … to his interest in flight, cultivated by frequent international travel as a representative for a national printing and publishing firm.


Tom’s work is collected throughout the U.S. and overseas.  Four of his paintings were purchased by the U.S. State Department for the U.S. Ambassador’s residence in Oslo, Norway.
