In Jinni Thomas’ work she says, " The emotion from that visual experience, that awe moment,
works down into our hearts and alters the grain of our reality. All my paintings are self-portraits; therefore, painting is a selfish act of searching for and preserving moments of beauty on canvas. From my days as a child wandering my Mother’s garden to my in depth study of Antiquity and the Italian Renaissance as an adult, the formal elements of Classicism and the desire to be emotionally charmed by beautiful things will always influence my creativity. My art is an expression of my feelings and a need for beauty”.
