Melodie Thompson



I approach each piece as a unique story in itself. This allows me to explore the subject and connect to the viewer without losing the intrinsic beauty it has on its own. The story evolves as I paint and the titles emerge as the work progresses. Engaging the viewer by applying oil with palette knives, ink brayers and brushes creates geometric texture juxtaposed with luminosity.
I am inspired by justice, compassion, equality, longing, beauty and hope. These themes become the underlying messages I desire to convey.
