Ann Thomas

Ann was born in Staffordshire and attended both Plymouth and Cardiff Colleges of Art, obtaining a National Diploma in Design (painting at Special Level) and my Art Teacher`s Diploma.

She taught in secondary schools in Wales and England before becoming a Lecturer in Art at the Malayan Teacher`s Training College in Liverpool. I was then appointed Supervisor in Art and Crafts for the Stoke-on-Trent Education Authority and continued this work until marrying Pat Thomas, an engineer for the Forestry Commission, and came to Tarbert in 1966.

Ann exhibited in various galleries in England and Wales and owned my own gallery and printing business in Tarbert for over 25 years. My paintings and prints are in private collections all over the world, especially in North America.

She has specialised in watercolour, acrylic, oil and pen and ink drawings covering Scottish Wildlife, landscapes and architecture. This has involved various commissions covering many of the great buildings in Scotland such as Hollyrood, Glamis, Castles and Houses on the Grand Tour, the National Trust for Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, Tourist Boards and the Forestry Commission.
