Thelma has had a number of solo exhibitions including at Waterfront Gallery Stromness and Histon Gallery Cambridge. "My work covers a vast range of subject matter from figurative to abstract and semi abstract landscape, often a combination of both, using literary sources, poetry, music etc, from memories, observation and imagination, often returning to earlier themes and sketchbook references with a new and different approach. I am still influenced by my years living in Scotland, the landscape, the tradition of the Scottish Colourists and not least by my four happy years spent in the Mackintosh studios of Glasgow School of Art."
