Thomas Lepora is an artist and painter and maker and breaker.
He has a varied working background from: mental health (ICU and community settings) to boat restoration and third sector environments.
Thomas’ own art practices focuses on interpersonal relationships with people who have been marginalised in society. Making those connections and building trust is key to his work. He uses found materials to produce objects that are either kept, recycled or gifted to the person who enjoys them the most.
Thomas also runs workshops for people who are in home education. These are centered around making and collecting materials that can be made into something or broken, depending on what is wanted.
