If you count yourself as a true art aficionado, one thing is certain – that no art collection would ever be complete without the stunning works of Kathryn Thomas. From violent Singapore thunderstorms to hazy horizons, her paintings showcase an eclectic range of themes and a vibrant array of colours. With her latest work, Kathryn has developed further her focus on an area that she holds close to her heart – astronomy.
Appearing at The Royal Opera Arcade Gallery from Sunday 26th November to Saturday 2nd December 2017, you’ll discover something that will make you stare in wonderment. The Wonderment paintings by Kathryn Thomas capture the realism and stark beauty of astronomical phenomena such as galaxies, planets and even the northern lights.
In many ways, her Wonderment paintings can be described as spiritual successors to the groundbreaking ‘Nightlight’ collection. It was this collection that first demonstrated Kathryn’s passion and fascination of the unknown. Kathryn’s journey of discovery has led her to a greater understanding of celestial bodies. The result is a deeply refined technique that combines elements of her previous work to create these truly unique and original oil paintings.
The Wonderment paintings will be released as they are produced rather than as a collection. But you can get an exclusive preview as the first of her paintings are unveiled at The Royal Opera Arcade Gallery.

Kathryn Thomas has achieved much over the last 30+ years.

This time spent has allowed her to hone her talents and discover new fascinations to explore.
From galaxies and nebulas to the awe-inspiring beauty of nature, each of her original oil paintings is an expression of Kathryn’s passion and dedication to her craft. She is one of only a few artists to sell their entire graduation portfolio and has been credited as having brought colour and character to all of Dorset.
To quote Nick and Frances Scott Ram, owners of one of Kathryn’s oil paintings and members of the Kathryn Thomas Community – “Apart from the stunning visual beauty captured in her paintings, there is a sense of grace and spirit that opens the heart to a world within. Kathryn’s ability to capture the essence of the subject matter whether it be light, fire or ice, the stars, or the Northern Lights, offers a deeper level of reality and lived experience that is second to none.” It is this wonderment that sits at the heart of Kathryn’s latest work which you can discover for yourself at The Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, Sunday 26th November to Saturday 2nd December!
