Mary Alayne Thomas



Raised by two full time artists in Santa Fe New Mexico, Mary Thomas has had a strong desire to create since childhood. Finding constant inspiration from her memories of New Mexico, as well as from the beauty of her current home in Portland Oregon, her paintings continually attempt to capture those magic ephemeral moments we all experience, both real and imagined.

Having painted all of her life, she was initially taken with a love for the luminosity and versatility of watercolor and has since progressed to work with encaustic. She best describes her work as “a delicacy and softness that emanates from the layering of art forms within the transparent surface.”
