Kate Thomas: Artist Bio

Kate has been creating since she was little. She studied Fine Art in college and hasn’t stopped painting since. Kate Thomas Art has been in full swing since 2011. Her studio is at 4400 Colley Ave in Norfolk, Va where she also teaches workshops, classes and private lessons.

“Life hasn’t always been roses for me. But I have been on a mission to find and create beauty despite pain. Painting has been life giving for me and I love that I get to share and spread beauty through my work. I want to offer our hope, joy and peace through my work.” – Kate

Hamilton Perkins Collection

In 2014, Hamilton Perkins founded Hamilton Perkins Collection, an independent brand, designing and producing unique and award winning bags and accessories from recycled materials. Hamilton Perkins Collection exists to create timeless limited edition bags made from recycled plastic water bottles, pineapple leaf fiber, and billboard vinyl. The result is that no two bags are ever the same.

Our first design, the Earth Bag Premium, was created so that our customers would not only carry a bag that was stylish but carry a bag they could be proud of.  We surveyed more than 1,000 consumers to obtain their thoughts and feedback for each component of the Earth Bag Premium, which soon became one of our most popular designs. Perkins was the winner of the Virginia Velocity Tour hosted by the Governor of Virginia, and the recipient of a HUD Community Development Block Grant. The non-profit B Lab honored Hamilton Perkins Collection as a “Best for the World Overall” B Corporation in 2017. Hamilton Perkins Collection has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, Money Magazine, and The Washington Post.
