Kate Thompson

I received a degree in Fiber Arts and worked as a textile print designer in the
apparel business in Los Angeles for 20 years, but my real education started in
2009. I started painting and made it a practice to paint every day. As I honed my
craft and progressed to the next level of my practice lead me to question why I
paint. It is a spiritual journey that I am on and it is something I have to do to keep
my mind and body happy!

I work with watercolors and gesso, acrylics, oils, pastels with inks, or all of them. I
am an experimenter. I create my own substrates using vintage linens or painting
on ledger paper. I also paint on more traditional substrates such as watercolor
paper and canvas. I would describe my work as expressive figurative and
portraiture mixed media.

I am represented by Lagerquist Gallery which is located the Buck Head area of Atlanta, Georgia.

I teach all over the United States as well as Europe. My passion is focused on the
creative process and I am as passionate about teaching as I am at creating art.
