Angela Trotta Thomas

United States

As a graduate of the famed “ Get your Masters from the Masters” program at Marywood University/ Pratt Institute Angela Trotta Thomas has spent the last 30 plus years as an Illustrator and Fine Artist. She works in many different genres and has made a name for herself in quite a few of them.

In 1991 after a successful career as an illustrator, Angela decided it was time for a change. She enrolled in Marywood University and earned a Masters Degree in studio art. That might have been enough for a young mother, but along the way she also became the premier Lionel Toy Train artist in America. Angela is the only artist to ever be licensed by the famed Lionel Train Company to create paintings depicting their iconic history.

In addition to toy trains paintings, Angela has also featured antique automobiles in her paintings. She was selected four times as the feature artist of the "Concours d' Elegance of the Eastern United States," the first woman to receive this honor.

Angela is represted by Reinert Fine Art, Charleston SC.
