"What I aim for in my paintings is a sense of place. To somehow capture and convey with paint, that unspeakable and nameless beauty that provokes an emotional response in me, and in turn the viewer. There is nothing more rewarding than when a viewer connects with a painting and feels a part of it somehow. I find these inspirations everywhere, sometimes it will be the simplest things that catch my eye. Nature has been, and always will be what excites me most as an artist. It is a deep well of inspiration to draw from." ~Kaia Thomas
