Kenyon Thomas


       I was born in Minnesota and have lived in New Mexico since 1945. I attended college at New Mexico Highlands University where I had the good luck to study with Elmer Schooley, Paul Volckning, Harry Leippe, and Ray Drew, all excellent artists and instructors.  Since graduation from college I have worked as a professional potter and painter.
       Although for years pottery has  been my primary occupation I am now painting full time and I find it greatly enjoyable and endlessly challenging. I like very much the immediacy of working with pastels and the range of colors that so richly portray the beauty of New Mexico and southwest landscapes.

  1. Your work is gorgeous as always! We treasure the piece we have that you did, an art deco plate with a wren, that we got at Mariposa when Faye Abrams
    owned it. So glad you are still creating! Monte and karlene Voepel
