Gerlinde Thomas

Gerlinde has always had a passion for creating; being drawn to portraiture and figurative endeavours, and in 2008 she decided to make the time to paint using watercolours, and later transitioning to oils.

Gerlinde Thomas

With no formal training, pure perseverance (which comes with her passion) and through much trial and error, her skills have developed over the years, seeing her recently venture into painting Skyscapes, Seascapes and Flora. She has participated in over 45 art exhibitions, and has held 4 solo exhibitions including “On The Face Of It”, and “Bygone Eras”.

“On The Face Of It” was held at Lost Bear Gallery and was opened by Mark Tedeschi AM QC. The exhibition depicted portraits celebrating over 30 Blue Mountains based artists and artisans. The “Bygone Eras” exhibition was held at Gallery One88 in Katoomba and was opened by Susan Templeman, Federal Member for Macquarie, from which “Days of Wine & Roses” was inspired. These works depict an era of simpler times, nostalgia, elegance and Haute Couture; a time when, elegance was finely woven into the fabric of society.

Gerlinde has works displayed in various locations throughout the Blue Mountains and is represented by the Little Wombat Gallery in Faulconbridge, where a cross section of her transitioning work can be seen. Currently, Gerlinde is working on commissions, which she loves and welcomes all enquiries.
