Barry Thomas is an impressionist artist based in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Best noted for his canvases filled with light, energy, and rich color, he often seeks to illustrate the beauty found in nature as well as everyday life.
“The paintings I create come from my family, my love of nature, and my deeply spiritual heart and bones.”
As a Fine Arts graduate from The Art Center College of Design in California and the University of Arkansas, he became an acclaimed illustrator and commercial artist who was later chosen for the Society of Illustration Hallmark Award. Over time, Barry discovered his
love for painting and studied under the guidance of artists such as Howard Terpning, Gary Carter, and William Reece. From there he honed his unique skills of capturing the beauty of everyday life in a vivid and energizing style. Since then his artwork has appeared in galleries
across the United States from New Mexico to Indiana and Florida.
