In this world of our high energy and physical reality, it is Ms. Thomas's goal to bring to the observer the innocence of nature through flowers and landscapes. Her objective is to breathe life, beauty, romance and healing on every masterpiece she creates. Every stroke is placed on the surface with love to bring healing into your home at whatever level of consciousness you choose.
Calliope Thomas is a visual artist who graduated from Queens College in New York in 1991 with a BA in Education. She became an early childhood educator and chose to use her artistic talents with Kindergartners. Now concentrating on art full time, she is inspired by the dance of harmony in her life choosing oils, acrylics and pastels as her medium. Ms. Thomas focuses mainly on landscape, still life and flowers, and through the use of vibrant colors, breathes beauty into every painting she creates. She participates annually in Cedarburg’s Plein Air Competition, Wauwatosa Plein Air and Village Affair, and South Shore Frolics Festival of Arts and the Milwaukee’s Artist Marketplace.
Now, Ms. Thomas is embarking on a new adventure by moving to Bradenton, and then Sarasota, Florida, where she will continue to work in pastels. For more information you can visit her at artbycalliope.blogspot.com where she talks about her journey as a pastelist.
