Eliza Thomas

Eliza Kabacoff Thomas is an Austin-based artist who was born in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up both in Austin, TX and New Orleans, LA. Thomas attended Columbia University’s Barnard College in New York City, where she studied Italian and art history, earning a B.A. in 1996, summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa. Thomas received her training at the Parsons School of Design and, since 2003, at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center.

In describing her work, Thomas states, “My work is about trying to capture the essence of something. Living or dead, animate or inanimate, a moment, a place: an overflowing bouquet of tulips; a bundle of dancing entwined dead twigs gathered in winter; the feel of the wind in the evening when summer is fading and fall is coming; a poem, epitaph, or other verse that has significance to myself, to others, to a certain individual.”
