Pauline Thomas is an abstract artist producing bold stylised paintings celebrating the Welsh Landscape and powerful, thought provoking art. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in London and throughout the UK, Europe, Canada, USA and Australia. Pauline has a passion for painting and the part of the world that she lives in. Her work can be found in private and public collections throughout the UK, Europe, USA and Dubai. Her inspiration has been derived from her life in west Wales, her past work in the agricultural sector working within the changing landscape, weather and rhythm of the rural way of life and by the folklore and history of her surrounding communities as well as the beautiful coastline where she lives. Pauline is self-taught and unafraid of experimenting in new ways of producing artwork, which has allowed her work to develop outside the confines of convention and enabled her to produce works of true originality. Pauline was a finalist of the “UK Liberte d’ Expression Competition 2006″, selected for the International Art Competition “Hands Off” in 2007 and recognised as work of distinction in the Americas Biennial in 2008. Pauline was also honoured to be awarded the Diploma of Academician Member of The International Academy Santarita, by world renowned artist Armando Farina, for artistic merit in 2014.. Her paintings have been used to decorate the lobbies of many major blue chip companies including Petro Canada London Bridge and Barclays Bank at Canary Wharf. Her work has also been used to illustrate calendars, web based advertisements and books e.g. “Origin of Cancer”, by Springer and “Pushing out the Boat”, a magazine for new writing.
