In general Alex Thompson would not appear to be a veteran artist, except that she has been expressing herself through the visual arts since the moment she could hold a pencil. Thompson is a high school sophomore who works in acrylic, oil, and pastel media in order to create contemporary, abstract and realistic works of art. Her work has been recognized in downtown Bristol galleries, Bristol Public Library showings, and has been awarded in numerous regional exhibitions- including Best of Show at the 2008 Appalachian Fair. Currently, she is working on her Lines of Color series, as well as her strikingly realistic, mixed-media animal pieces, and has also been expanding into new forms of art including pottery and polymer jewelry. Thompson plans to continue creating and improving her art, and would like to attend college for a double major in painting and ceramics.
