About Wendy Thompson

It takes considerable time and patience to complete a colored pencil painting. Wendy Thompson finds the process quite meditative and therapeutic. When working, her thoughts reside among the quiet places of the woods and ponds, and she emulates this in her work, conveying a sense of quietude and tranquility.

Born and raised in Oregon, Wendy finds that The Pacific Northwest offers a continually changing palette from which to draw inspiration. Primarily self-taught as an artist, she attends occasional workshops for continued confidence and inspiration. Working with watercolor, oil, and graphite over the years, she ultimately settled on colored pencil because it allows for precision, control of detail, and depth.

Wendy’s art is very distinctive and detailed. Her pieces show nature as she sees it. She captures the beauty of a blooming lily, along with the flaws that show bug-eaten leaves. She lives among the fir trees of the northern Oregon coast and has come to appreciate the ravens that live close by. Their stories come to life in many of her pieces, which are sought after by a worldwide clientele.

With several pieces of her artwork juried into International exhibitions, Wendy earned her signature membership in the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA 2007), and received Master Pencil Artist Status (MPAS 2013) with the Pencil Art Society. She began self-marketing in 2004 and was fortunate to connect with publishers to license work for use on calendars, cards, magnets, and journals. Working with publishers, galleries, and personal sales, she is able to support herself as a working artist and devote time completely to her art.
