Shirley Thompson

Shirley Thompson

Shirley Thompson is an extraordinary artist, and a woman of many talents including being a professional musician for over 25 years playing sax, trumpet, organ and piano, and her favourite instrument, the bass guitar.

She has had an interest in art from an early age.However it is only in the last decade that she has pursued her love of art professionally.In that time, she has definitely created a master’s touch.Shirley’s paintings are decisive, bold and confident.Her work is always full of energy and passion with dramatic colours and striking compositions.

There is a lot of diversity in her work, and yet at a first glance, it is so obviously hers.She has developed a distinct style, full of colour and excitement and yet at the same time there is a strong sense of serenity.Her work is never predictable, and her paintings have the power to stop you in your tracks.The texture is tantalizing, the colours 'zing', the harmony is pure poetry and her compositions are creativity at its best.

Thompson says, "It was as if a passion within me awoke and I was driven to paint at all times of night and day.The creative process itself pushes me to continually explore new approaches.It is the first execution that excites me and I let the energy and passion flow to create the painting.It is the journey, never the end result, that drives me."

Shirley has taken painting workshops from Mike Svob, Janice Robertson and Alan Wylie, all members of the Federation of Canadian Artists, of which she is also a member.

She is an extremely popular artist whose work has sold to numerous collectors both locally and internationally.
