Artists Rachel Thomas

 

Rachel enjoys movement and patterns in nature, the changing of seasons and light; she is influenced by new sights, sounds, tastes and colour. All of these experiences come alive in her paintings.

Rachel was born in Grantham, Lincolnshire but as a child moved often. The longest spent in one county, until moving to Norfolk, was Oxford for 8 years; even then yearly Romany caravan holidays to Wales kept alive her wanderlust.

Travelling continued to be a passion throughout her teenage years and beyond.

Rachel studied textile design at Great Yarmouth and West Yorkshire Art colleges, before moving to London for a couple of years and then onto Barbados. It was in Barbados that she started to paint and exhibit on a regular basis, inspired by empty beaches and the thrill of climbing a new hill or mountain just to catch a glimpse of what's on the other side.

Rachel has exhibited regularly since 1989 and her work is held in private collections in Barbados, Canada, America, Holland and South Africa. She has exhibited locally and in London and was the first woman to exhibit art in 'The Palace of Westminster'. Rachel has taught oils to adults and children and continues to demonstrate oil painting. She is also a member of the Great Yarmouth Society of Artists .
