People always ask who my favorite artist is and although it is hard to narrow it down to just one, the first name that always comes out is Alma Thomas. LOVE AND INSPIRED BY HER.
Alma is from DC. She was an art teacher in the public schools for many years. Later in her life she began painting and showing full time she was in her 70's. Alma paints on a grand scale so usually her work is on very large canvases.
