Ginger Thomas’ passion for art began at a young age, but it was not until September of 2014 that she began her career as a self-taught artist. She grew up in Summit, Mississippi and spent most of her adult life in Birmingham, AL. In 2011, she returned to Mississippi and began painting in 2014. She quickly realized there was an obvious freedom and personal expression with abstraction and she was deeply interested in the effects of color, texture and the emotional response to strong composition and design. By creating something that told a story without an observational subject matter was very exciting to her. Ginger’s work is a mix of styles, ranging from modern to rustic. Her goal is to have the elements of design, color and texture unleash a sense of emotion for the viewer.
