Robyn Thomas' paintings are an expression of her fascination with neurological and biological processes, cellular structures, linguistics, history, music, performance and the creative process as it relates to the existential questions of mind-body . She began studying art with an emphasis on three-dimensional art and printmaking, and eventually switched her focus to drawing and painting.
Thomas received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art (Painting) from Kent State University in 1991. In addition, she has studied Art History, Philosophy and Pedagogy at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. She is currently a student in the MFA Creative Practice program of Transart Institute, and lives and paints in Providence, Rhode Island USA.
