Thomas paints Tingari - Men's Creation Dreaming which represents many sacred sites of his Country – such as Wilkinkarra, Maruwa, Tarrku, Njami and Yarrawangu, to name a few. These are locations of significant rockholes, sandhills, sacred mountains and water soakage’s in the Gibson Desert.

Thomas can be said to use shapes and symbolic lines in a more organic way than his younger brother, Walala, to represent the sacred ‘Tingari - Men’s Creation Dreaming’. Thomas’s style boldly features rectangles and detailed dot-work set against stark, black or occasionally red backgrounds. In his paintings, Thomas accurately ‘maps’ out the sacred ritual sites in a topographical layout.
