Tom McPhee Canadian born artist Thomas McPhee is largely self-taught. He attended various art schools, but he acquired most of his art education from studying the collections in museums and galleries through out Europe. Inspired by miniature carvings, he created small-scale works in wax that were used by goldsmiths to make jewelry.
