Celestine Thomas' art is rooted in her lifelong fascination with colour, further fueled by her experience as a person with dyslexia.
Thomas channels this dynamic language into paintings and as someone who finds it more accessible to express themselves through colour than traditional language. Celestines' semi-abstract artworks are visually striking and offer a unique insight into a child-like and imaginative world.
Aside from paintings, Celestine also creates sculptures using found materials. Thomas' playful and whimsical sculptures continue to explore the themes of childhood and creativity, showcasing the ability to transform discarded objects into meaningful works of art.
Celestine encourages us to embrace childhood's resourceful, playful, and colourful nature and appreciate everyday objects' beauty and creativity that often go unnoticed. Her unique perspective and approach to art inspire us to see the world with fresh eyes and to find joy and wonder in the simplest things.
