Christine Thomas is a fine artist with a  multi-disciplinary practice and often works  with textiles.  Her areas of interest include locational identity and the domestic, often from a feminist perspective and explore the use of nature and the domestic.  She uses practice led research methodology to inform of her experimental processes with materials from a feminist perspective. Her work often incorporates rurality and the domestic, exploring concepts of environment and place. 

She has experience of managing community arts projects and works as a freelance community artist alongside her own fine art practice. Christine is also a member of the Spaces Places Arts Research Group at the University of Derby. 

Christine has worked for a wide range of organisations as a facilitator, mentor and explores how creativity can be used to improve Self-Esteem, Confidence and Well-being in vulnerable people with enduring conditions.
