Artist of the Month: Denise Thompson

Denise Thompson is a local Parkland artist, originally from England. She sees art as a form of self-expression that enables her to hyper-focus on her surroundings as a sensory being. She is inspired by untamed spaces. Recently she has been exploring her connection to Place and the history of South Florida. Her latest work has taken her into the Everglades and 10,000 Islands on the west coast of Florida. There she has been inspired by the natural landscape and raw energy she found waiting beyond the walls. She discovered an intimacy with her surroundings that has added a quality of storytelling and visualization to her work. Despite the remote locations she portrays, her work creates a familiarity within the wild spaces that surround us. She works in various media, primarily photography, printmaking, ceramics, and painting. Denise has a Master’s degree in Education, and is completing her MFA in Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts in NYC.

Her work will be on display through January 30th.
