Pauline Thomas is an abstract artist living in west Wales, UK, well known for her bold, powerful and thought provoking art. She 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. Other works have been inspired by places and events tempered by her personal experiences and emotions.
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.
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. Many of her paintings are now successful in the interior design market, sold as fine art prints on paper or canvas by a number of art publishers.
Pauline’s artwork provokes thought and stimulates conversation, ideal for the collector, modern home or innovative business.
