Tom Stone Animation Art Gallery & Studio began in 2010 when Brenda’s husband Tom Ray passed away. He was the animator of all of the Looney Tunes Cartoons like “Tom & Jerry” as well as the 1966 original “How the Grinch stole Christmas”. Brenda looked around at all of Tom’a artwork in her garage & decided she would open a hole in the wall to expose his art. She found a perfect spot for the gallery in Virginia Beach. Visit 228 North Lynnhaven Road to visit and view Tom’s timeless watercolor paintings of all of your cartoon favorites. She also leased out the building next door and turned it into a restaurant, “Breakfast at Tom Stone”, where she is the head cook. Even though the road is sometimes challenging, she hasn’t given up. Brenda Ray you are truly a Dream Catcher.
