Carol Finkbeiner Thomas is primarily an oil painter whose subjects include landscape, floral and figurative work. Colour, texture and mood play important roles in her works which have been described as evocative and deeply atmospheric. Paintings begin with a loose, freehand drawing, and progress to the building up of the surface of the canvas using brushes, palette knives and a variety of traditional and non-traditional methods.
Carol was born in London, Ontario and raised north of Toronto. She returned to London in the early 1990’s after receiving her Honours Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts at York University. She enjoys working in a wide variety of media including drawing, printmaking and pottery.
