Carla Thomson was a fulltime artist who maintained a studio in the New England town of Glocester, RI. Primarily painting realistic florals and landscapes, she creates images that inspire – from the joy in a brightly colored bouquet to the serenity of waves crashing on a rocky shore. Collectors express how her art imbues joy and tranquility. She received her B.A. in Studio Art from Rhode Island College with a focus on graphic design. She later discovered her love for painting working on murals for her children’s nurseries, which lead to a short part-time role as a muralist. Carla continued developing through self-study, coursework Rhode Island College, workshops and a collaborative painting group lead by master artist Linda A. Woods. She recently transitioned to a full-time artist after a long career in technology at a multinational financial services company. The story of her midlife career change appeared on www.abc6.com. Her artwork is found in numerous private collections throughout the US and Europe.
