My name is Patricia Thomas and I have been painting for the last 20+
years. Although I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Science
from Auburn University at Montgomery, Alabama, I have received art
training in elective classes at AUM, continuing education classes at the
Memphis College of Art, and art classes under the tutelage of Julia
Peters, accomplished artist of Greenville, SC, where I now reside with
my husband and three children.
I usually paint pictures of family, pets, and scenes from my
travels. Now that my kids are back in school, I'm looking forward to
having more time to devote to painting.
I love expressing my creativity through choosing a subject, deciding on
the composition, and bringing the endeavor to fruition. I enjoy working
in oils because of its tradition, malleability, durability, and
layering effect (especially over mistakes). I work (slowly but surely)
around its slow drying time by working on several projects at a time.
