Brian Thomas, Painter
I am a painter and usually use Acrylic on canvas or canvas board but do some mixed media and oils occassionally as well as drawings.
Having made a decision to enter into a management career after A Levels rather that pursue a career in Art, I have for over 25 years had a successful career in business and in 2004 took the opportunity to retire early and paint full-time. This has turned into a huge outpouring of work in a variety of styles and mediums over the last 10 years.
I have sold well locally and on the internet. I had a 6 week exhibition in March 2006 in Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham and in June 2006 took part in a joint exhibition in Manley School House. In both exhibitions my work sold well, and has resulted in a number of commissions since the exhibitions.
I am basically self taught although I have attended some life classes over the years and had some teaching during holidays abroad. I am currently displaying my work in restaurants in Liverpool and Frodsham I have recently been working on a series of paintings of the Liverpool Waterfront.
