"I wish to capture the fleeting moment, the first impression. I love the spontaneity of color and atmosphere that can be created by the artist, in the quest for the ambiance of time and place - a memory or the thrill of just being there, at that instant."
Patricia E.M. Thompson received Classical Training in Fine Art at Hull Regional College of Art/Interior Design, London/SIAD Illustrators Design Studio. She has been a part of the London Scene since the 1960s with extensive travels and stays in West and South Africa. The breadth of her oeuvre extends from loose Cafe Life to tight Architectural and formal Figurative pieces of work, from Drawings and Caricature to Watercolors and Narrative Illustration and refined Studio Oil Painting - all created through a unique use of line and color. Thompson's work has been sold and exhibited worldwide, to Collectors, Dealers and Private Buyers. The paintings are featured in the 2005/6 Miller's Picture Price Guide.
