More About Me & How I Became an Artist

My name is Amanda Thompson. I am originally from Avon, Indiana and am currently in Indianapolis, Indiana. I graduated from the University of Indianapolis in 2021 with a BFA degree with a concentration in painting. I have been out of school for a few years now and I have a day job in marketing and on the side I make art.

As far back as I can remember, I have always loved painting and drawing.  When I went  to college, I decided to pursue my love of art.  I learned a lot in my time at college and my artistic skills got a lot better.  I fell back in love with painting and found an appreciation for a lot of new art mediums I had not focused on in the past.

I love being in nature so that tends to be a theme in my artwork.  I also love to read, which is another huge inspiration for my art.  I do mostly surrealism and some landscapes but I tend to blend the two styles in what I describe as nature surrealism.
