He was born in London in 1846 and studied at the Royal Academy Schools as well as under James Abbott McNeill Whistler as his first pupil. Whistler taught him to etch, and in 1874 he etched a portrait of his master for inclusion in Ralph Thomas's Catalogue of Whistler's Etchings. Percy Thomas exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1867 and was elected a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1881. He lived in London and later in Hove, Sussex.
