BIOGRAPHY OF A LANDSCAPE PAINTER
Kimberly Thompson moved to Campbell River after being a long-time resident of Sooke, British Columbia. She started to develop her raw natural talent at an early age. Born and Raised in Edmonton she was Influenced and mentored in her childhood by an artistic family and thus started the process of her self-taught artistic career. She began selling commission works while in middle school. By the time she graduated from high school, Kimberly had shown and sold pieces to many private collections as as well as a number of galleries in Edmonton.
Kimberly's path led her to the west coast in 1994. It was there she began her shift from being a mixed media artist to strictly an acrylic painter. Kimberly has found that she needs to continue to have contact with the outdoors on a daily basis. Her education/career(s) in forestry, fire fighting and diving have enabled her to be physically surrounded by nature. This is where she finds her ideas, images and inspiration. These jobs afforded her the privilege of living for long periods of time in the most pristine, remote, and otherwise inaccessible areas of British Columbia.
Her style is constantly developing. Kimberly’s coastal abstract style, the swirl and play of the art draws the viewer in to experience some of the intense physicality that is present on our Canadian wilderness.
