Thomas was born in California but lived in Ohio for until 1980 when his search for employment in the printing industry took him to Virginia. He worked in the printing industry until 1993 when he began his career as an artist. His enthusiasm for making all manner of objects began with research into the 18th-Century period. Finding enjoyment in working with silver gave birth to his attempts to make different types of silver pieces. Most of the items he makes are influenced by the style of colonial America.
