The One Popsicle biography for Thomas states that Jeff Thomas “majored in International Business at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, with a minor in Spanish. Traveling post-college while modeling internationally has always been a passion for being in the art world and being able to collaborate with creatives from all walks of life, cultures and big cities.”
It goes on,
Attending art fairs such as Frieze Art Fair in London and Art Basel in Miami over the years are some events where he found his inspiration while meeting some of the most renowned artists and becoming an art collector himself. He realized that there was a niche missing in the art world, and that was someone who could bring clients to artists and help them find the right pieces for their home, office, and other art collectors. Collaborating with certain artists to curate some of his own personal pieces inspired him to help others do the same with artists he works with for his clients. He will always enjoy inspiring people in the art world as others inspire him to do the same.
