Catherine M. Thompson is an artist based out of Portland, Ore.  Influenced by the work of Monet and Picasso, Thompson blends texture and abstraction of form with the raw expression of street art.  Inspiration is drawn from the pigments and geometries found in nature and at times are juxtaposed with cutting elements of urban decay.  Found objects and reclaimed materials are used to create mixed media pieces that focus on conscious consumption, offering new life to re-contextualized excess.

Thompson earned a Bachelor of Science in Art degree from the University of Oregon in 2008.  Her work has been shown in Portland, Palm Springs and Los Angeles.  In addition to her paintings, Catherine is an active participant in the live music scene, where she creates concert tees, posters, album covers and booklet art for bands both domestically and internationally.  Her work has been published in fashion and literary magazines, and her painting “Wishful Thinking” was chosen as the best visual art piece of the 2010 edition of Perception Magazine.  A recent collaboration includes upcoming shoe brand Bucketfeet, which gives back to communities around the world.
