Tommy was born in 1956 at Doon Doon Station in the East Kimberley and worked as a stockman for many years. His knowledge of the country in which he worked is extensive and the pivotal focus of his paintings.

He is a natural – his style is strong, individual, balanced, striking. It is obvious that he has never followed in anyone’s footsteps – his works are most definitely by Tommy Carroll. The paintings flow with the landscape – from minimal yet precise black and white to vibrant reds and bright yellow to the softer black/brown/green of his grandfather, Paddy Carroll’s country.

He has participated in Solo and Group Exhibitions throughout Australia – his paintings have been acquired by important collectors, the National Gallery of Australia and the Parliament House Collection. Tommy’s works are popular world-wide, as many collectors from America, Germany and Holland have discovered and collected and continue to commission works by this now well established artist.

A man of few words, a focused, professional artist – minimal by style, not by market preference.

Pelican Hole was a mustering camp with a permanent spring, right at the bottom of big hill country on East Doon Doon Station, Bedford Downs way. There was water after the wet, when the mustering started, but dried up by say July. So we had to muster this part first – after the wet. Slippery then because of the high mountains all around – now it’s all done by aerial muster with helicopters – guess they still use the yards at Pelican Hole – they were built to last, like most of the early stock yards up here – big timber yards all made by hand in the early days. I have painted this country in wet time at night, all looking dark and boggy. The spring at Pelican Hole is the place for Werra Werra or water spirits (mermaids).
