About this month’s featured artist:
Veronica Thomas was born in South Africa and spent some formative years growing up in a small town situated at the gates of the Kruger National Park in South Africa, but now lives in the United States, in Oregon. She draws on her experiences, influences, and personal understanding from both cultures to create her own expression in art. She enjoys painting a variety of subject matter including figurative, landscapes and still-life. Her desire is to capture glimpses of the Divine, not only in nature, but also in everyday things. Her work is primarily representational and traditional in approach, maybe described as “passionate realism”.
As part of her ongoing learning process she has participated in workshops with renowned artists like Kevin Beilfuss, Frank Ordaz and Thomas Blackshear. She also loves to frequent art galleries and museums to be inspired by living and the old masters. She is a member of Oil Painters of America and a part of the Grand View Art Society, as well as Masterpiece Christian Fine Art Foundation.
“I believe the true purpose of my art is to provide insight, hope and joy to those who view my work, sharing with others the gift of the Giver” ~ Veronica Thomas
