Thomas Arthur was born February 18, 1956 in Chicago, IL the son of Thomas F. and Helen Marie (Kenosha) VanSelus. He graduated from Shell Lake High School and started working in construction remodeling houses. Thomas joined the army on June 6, 1977 and served for three years, much of it stationed in Germany.

He went to work with his Uncle in “Tom’s Masonry” where they did all kinds of masonry and he specialized in field stone work. While working as a mason, Tom met Renee Elena Warnek in Darlington, WI. Tom and Renee were married on November 22, 1988 in Sarasota, FL. Together they operated a small farm in Dewey with wonderful neighbors where they raised beef and sheep. Tom continued working as a mason and eventually began his own business, called Stone Age that he was operating until the time of his death. Tom enjoyed photography, painting in oils, gardening, hunting and cutting firewood. He loved to take trips where he could just drive and stop at local places of history, unique buildings and visit small dining cafés. He was a member of Stone Mad and Fine Art of America.

Executing massive hammer blows to gently coerce steel and stone or laying down delicate brush stokes with riggers of fine Sable, such is the work that we do. Working with natural beauty and simplicity to achieve the simply beautiful is our goal.

The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time. Thoreau.
