“Delight in the joy of anticipating spring’s first flowers, the wonder of a glorious sunrise, or a spectacular sunset. I am an artist and a creator. I capture cherished moments and emotions to experience them again each time we see them.” – Carla
Carla Thomson paints realistic florals and landscapes, she creates images that inspire – from the joy in a brightly colored bouquet to the serenity of waves crashing on a rocky shore. Collectors express how her art imbues joy and tranquility. She also welcomes portrait commissions.
She received her B.A. in Studio Art from Rhode Island College with a focus on graphic design. She later discovered her love for painting working on murals for her children’s nurseries, which lead to a short part-time role as a muralist. Carla continued developing through self-study, coursework at Rhode Island College, workshops and a collaborative painting group lead by master artist Linda A. Woods.
She recently transitioned to full-time artist after a long career in technology at a multinational financial services company. The story of her midlife career change appeared on www.abc6.com. Her artwork is found in numerous private collections throughout the US and Europe.
