Martina Thomas (1924 – 1995) was born in east London and lived most of her life in Sussex, but she was inspired by her visits to Cornwall with her husband Eric Mellon and their children.
In celebration of the centenary year of the artist’s birth and to mark her dedication to painting the landscapes, harbours and fishermen of Cornwall, Martina Thomas’s family have chosen a selection of her Cornish artworks and rarely-exhibited examples of her later work. Gallery 1
