Tom Lincoln was born in Ankara, Turkey, where his father was stationed with the U.S. Information Agency. His mother had been stationed in Ankara with the British Foreign Service.

A short time after his birth, his family moved to Saigon, Vietnam, where his father headed the Joint U.S. Public Affairs Office. The family later moved to London, England, to Richmond, Virginia, and finally to the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Lincoln’s earliest self-directed art projects involved creating detailed plastic models of cars and airplanes and drawing pictures of spies. He developed traditional and contemporary artistic skills under the direction of Sandy Larson, Deirdre Saunder, and Richard Dana. Lincoln continued his training with courses at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In 2012, Tom Lincoln and clinical psychologist and artist Dr. Tracy Steen received a Social Media Leadership Award from the Wharton School, the University of Pennsylvania’s school of business. Knowledge@Wharton recognized their art project Monument as an example of how to use social media to promote a more unified world.

Lincoln and Steen also co-founded the art, design, and image consulting firm TNT Content & Design. TNT is the one-stop shop you need for design, social media strategy, marketing, and writing. TNT will also produce commissioned portraits.

From 1999 to 2010, Lincoln was an attorney in Phialdelphia. He engaged in complex appellate and trial litigation involving product liability mass torts. He also provided pro bono advice to Philadelphia’s political watchdog organization, the Committee of Seventy. He was a law clerk in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania with the Hon. William H. Yohn, Jr.

Lincoln is a graduate of Swarthmore College and New York University School of Law.
