Jayne Thomas


NZ Favourite Artists

"Representation of people is central to my work.Their faces, gestures, clothing and possessions all have a story to tell revealing aspects of the person within the shell. To freeze and transfer a moment. To capture a persons life. To give a visual representation is not a summary and definitely not all there is to that person and it is not possible to read an individuals life in one image because we are made up of layers and we are complicated. I'm searching for the blueprint, the mark of the maker, the beginning of what we become."
Jayne Thomas NZ Figurative artist from Kaipara
Born in the UK but immigrated with her parents to New Zealand. Settled in Henderson however Jayne now resides in Helensville. Formal training consists of one year partime painting at Hungry Creek Art and Craft School and then full time at Manukau/Rutherford doing a certificate in "Visual Arts". Jayne works mainly in oils and bright encaustic wax and the subject matter is generally about humanity/people looking at anonymity and what creates it. Her works are collected for their vibrant colour and striking presentation. She has work in the UK, Europe and the USA as well as nationally. Jayne has since taught art at a Get Creatives Suburban Titirangi program and this year is furthering her practice whilst continuing study.
