Introducing: Michelle Thompson

AR: What was the driving force behind your choice to become an artist?

I have always wanted to be an artist, initially I wanted to be a Graphic Designer and design album covers but that changed once I got to college.

AR: Does your artwork have a message? 

Most of my editorial commissioned work is political and based on current affairs. A lot of my personal collage work is also a commentary on what is happening now but in collage form.

AR:Do you keep tabs on art trends or are you all about doing your own thing?

I’m really interested in houses and interiors, I love seeing my work in peoples homes.

AR: What/who are your biggest influences? Artists or otherwise

I have about 26 years worth of printed ephemera, I love collecting books and imagery from wherever we go.

AR: What’s your favourite creative work (artwork, music, play, film, etc)

I love buying affordable artwork, my favourite artist is Magda Archer who’s work has been an inspiration since my Royal College days.

AR: How have you developed your style?

My work is always evolving, when I left college I was producing mainly abstract pieces which worked really well in publishing. Using a computer made my work more narrative, which resulted in more editorial work. I now love and mixture of the two.

AR: Have you picked up any other skills in order to create your artwork that you weren’t expecting?

I would love to say I’ve learned how to be a great framer but sadly it’s bloody hard and I’m rubbish!

AR: What’s your favourite piece in your portfolio and why?

I couldn’t choose a favourite piece of work, I have a few that I don’t sell and keep in my house but I’m always changing my mind!

AR: Describe your art style in three words.

Graphic, pink, memory

AR: What is your workspace set up like? Are you in a studio/do you work alongside others/are you at a laptop or freehand

I work from home, in a studio I share with my partner Graphic Designer Gareth Wild. We have a big table we both work from and when collaging I work on my plan chest in front of the window.
