In Thomas’s own words, “I truly love to paint. I feel it makes my life complete! The process of building the panels, thinking of the loose idea, putting down the acrylic sketch, deciding the mark making, moving around and around the piece, pushing the paint around and finalizing with oil washes and glazes…I just love it!”
“I like to tone down bright, garish colors to earthier tones that I think are most appealing for the overall look of an individual work. Towards the end of the process, I use whites as color and pale colors for balance for the over all pieces and finish each piece’s edges with a silver or gold so it’s ready to be hung.”
Thomasa is a SCAD graduate and a third generation artist. She resides happily in Atlanta with her two children and house full of pets, always with paint on her hands!
