Thomas T. Thomas was born in 1957 and is currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Thomas’ journey into painting was totally by accident, but since the day that wonderful accident occurred, Thomas has developed an intense passion for painting and has been creating wonderful canvases filled with color, light and movement. Thomas is no stranger to the arts, as he graduated from the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music, with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. Thomas is also an accomplished Jazz and Classical Guitarist. Additionally, he has an MBA from the University of Cincinnati and is Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). After a distinguished business career as a Financial Executive in the Biotechnology Industry, Thomas has come full circle to embrace his roots as an artist, and is excited to expand and fully embrace his artistic expression through painting.
I have developed an intense passion for painting, creating wonderful canvases filled with color, light and movement…… “I started painting because I had this intense desire to express my feelings in color and shapes. For me painting is spiritual and cleansing, always creating a path to renewal of body and soul. Painting is also very physical and when I am finished with a piece, I am emotionally and physically drained. My inspiration is drawn from nature, my day to day experiences and by music, where music is the driving force that brings everything together. Each painting captures my emotional state and represents a broad spectrum of moods, from happy and lyrical to sad and dark. The colors represent the richness of harmony, the shapes are the melody and the brush strokes represent rhythm and meter. When I begin a new painting, I never know what direction the painting is going to take until it is finished, always listening to the painting tell me the direction it wants to go, and so the act of painting is totally spontaneous. My primary motivation is to create a work of art that engages the viewer’s imagination….creating the conditions for a continuous state of discovery.”
