His talents earned him a Fine Arts scholarship in 1954, and upon graduation from Mount Allison University, a Canada Council grant allowed him to pursue independent study in Europe. The commissioned painting he produced as a wedding gift to H.R.H Princess Margaret in 1960 was the beginning of a lucrative art career. Working mainly in egg tempera and watercolors on shaped panels, the works of painter Tom Forrestall incorporate elements of Magic Realism.

During the 1980s he began adding lithography printing to his work.
