Judith Thompson is a San Francisco-based Mixed Media Artist. She received her BA in Art and studied for a year at Ecole des Beaux-Arts and La Sorbonne, in Paris. Later in life she attended Architecture school at California College of the Arts and worked as an Architectural Illustrator. Over the years, in between career and family, she sporadically pursued her interest in painting and drawing. Now she is enjoying a return to making art full time and has set up her studio in Telegraph Hill overlooking the San Francisco Bay.
Judith’s work consists of layers of paint and paper applied intuitively to the canvas and sanded back to reveal images that reflect an emotion, a memory, or a thread of common experience. A peek into the layers might evoke a story of a peaceful simpler time: Bird song in our back yards, picnics in parks, or even walks through imaginary cities or forests. With no agenda for what the piece will ultimately say, she follows the direction her art leads her. Birds symbolize peace, transformation, freedom and power. Using images, colors, shapes and textures found in nature, she tries to connect with and preserve the beauty and tranquility of nature. Judith has exhibited in many shows and her work is in collections nationally.
