Angie Thomas

Angie Thomas grew up at the centre of the yachting community, on the river Hamble, within a big family of sailors, shipwrights and artists. Originally trained in catering, Angie possesses an artistic flare as both chef and painter. Moving to the Isle of Wight with her young family in the ‘70s, Angie takes her inspiration from her love of nature, the Island, it`s people and animals.

As a self-taught artist, her work has become widely collected over the years. Angie’s love of the wild garden she and her husband have built and grown in the picturesque village of Brading, overlooking the sea, can be seen in her successful range of bold, floral designs.

She is particularly interested in the essence of her subjects, which she captures with her wicked sense of humour, portraying people, animals and flowers with both warmth and familiarity that we all recognize and love. ”I`ve always loved the quirkiness in the nature of people and animals, and try to share this in my work. This is the first time in my life I`ve been without pets in my house and miss them very much, I now find myself painting them more often, perhaps because of this.”
