Angie Thomas

Angie Thomas

Born in 1952 in Hampshire, Angie Thomas is a self taught artist who grew up surrounded by rolling hills and babbling streams with all the flora and fauna that the best of the English countryside has to offer.

Drawing on her love for her surroundings she freely, yet modestly admits that she is not so concerned with the literal translation of a particular subject or landscape, but instead, enjoys capturing the atmosphere and charm that embraces her as she teases her brush and palette knife across a canvas.

More recently Angie has explored new techniques with bold floral work and stunning architectural subjects that have been widely acknowledged as truly wonderful works of art. We are delighted to have Angie’s work with us at West Country Galleries.

Angie, who has lived on the Isle of Wight for over 30 years, with her husband and two sons, has taken much of her inspiration from its surrounding countryside. However, she has found that her best ideas have come from complete strangers. "I find myself constantly watching interesting people, the way they move and express themselves, so I have to be careful not to get caught staring" says Angie whose observational eye can be seen in her work.

Working professionally as a full time artist Angie says: "I am living my dream".
