Thomas is a distinguished visual artist, filmmaker, and curator. Her work, mostly large-scale portraits of women posed against boldly patterned backgrounds adorned with rhinestones, combine references from art history, politics, and pop-culture that challenge common definitions of beauty, sexuality, and black female identity. Carrington is an award-winning drummer, composer, and bandleader. After a twenty-year career touring with luminaries including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, and Dianne Reeves, she became a professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
