Rianna Thomas is an expressionist artist. Growing up with undiagnosed ADHD & Autism resulted in her relying on art as a source of expression & as a way to communicate with others. Life without a diagnosis resulted in Rianna growing up extremely shy, becoming one who tended to listen & observe rather than participate. Because of this, she used her art to interpret & understand herself & those around her, becoming fascinated from a young age with painting highly expressive & emotive faces.
Rianna’s medium of choice are watercolour paints. The organic, unpredictable nature of watercolours inspires her to express her thoughts & feelings, however messy they may be. Rianna also loves experimenting & mixing mediums together, and usually incorporates multiple mediums within one artwork, adding details with colour pencils, ink, & metallic accents.
Rianna’s goal with her art is to create emotive and relatable works that can resonate with others. She also hopes through using her art as therapy & being open with her Autism & ADHD diagnosis, she can help bring representation & awareness to those, especially women, on the spectrum.
