(b. 1970 )
An eye for detail combined with a desire to maintain freshness and spontaneity have led Chris Thomas to his current style of painting. From childhood, Thomas exhibited a great interest in drawing and began developing his skills in watercolor. Chris attended the Arts Students League in New York City and has pursued a career in art since 1992. Upon completion of his formal training, he spent the next three years studying the masters, learning their technique, and then developing his own. He has made his living as an artist since 1995.
Chris’ beautifully rendered oil paintings have led to enthusiastic interest by many private collectors including a piece in the permanent collection at the Evansville Museum . His work has been included in a number of corporate collections and has also been featured in several publications..
He is represented by galleries in Jackson Hole, WY and Cincinnati, OH.
Thomas offers workshops and weekly classes in his studio and gallery space at his business "Art Hub" in downtown Newburgh, IN.
Chris currently resides in Kentucky with his wife Shakira.
