Susan Thomson – Journey of Joy
My paintings are created with acrylic and mixed media, and often may be finished with a light resin. I am fascinated by the energy and joy of colour. By observing the world around me and the spirit of life,
creating my own personalities, often whimsical or mysterious in a somewhat abstract manner.
The paintings are intuitive allowing play to take over and become purposely reckless. My style or subjects change but as I experiment and challenge myself the bold colours remain . I strive to keep subjects simple, joyful and refreshing
My journey began several years ago as a commercial artist & I also achieved a Certificate in Fine Arts at Mohawk College
After experimenting with several different medias, I returned to acrylic paint a few years ago . Now acrylic painting and mixed media is my passion and I paint almost daily in my home studio in Port Dover
I have been fortunate to be involved with the Port Dover Open Studio Tours as well as
The Norfolk County Studio Tour, and have also exhibited at The Capitol Arts Market.
Many of my paintings have found new homes across Ontario.
Recently I began offering commissioned works, transforming beloved furry friends
into bright bold hand-painted acrylic originals
