Lenore Thomas is an artist, friend, puppy mom, girlfriend, sister, aunt, teacher and fashion lover who is working on being more vulnerable in order to get the most out of life. She is involved in several projects including three collaborative projects with photographer Ivette Spradlin and another project with composer Eric Moe.  If she isn’t making art or teaching, she is traveling, watching movies, spending time with friends, looking at puppy videos on Instagram and hopefully relaxing at the beach.

Thomas’s artwork has been shown in group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Estonia, China, Argentina, and Portugal. Thomas received her MFA in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and BAs in Religious Studies and Fine Arts from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. She is currently living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Studio Arts at the University of Pittsburgh.
