WK 12 – ARTIST INTERVIEW – Michelle Thompkins

This week, the exhibiton that really spoke to me was that of Michelle Thompkins. It depicts the world, as seen through the eyes of a little girl observing it through her own young, fresh, creative eyes. In her mind, she creates often cartoonish, exaggerated personalities for the people she meets on the street, often times based on their expression or their overall demeanor, or even the way they are dressed. I can relate to this because I too used to do this, and I can still remember sitting on a park bench for hours, people watching, and creating extensive backstories for everyone I saw.

I am really happy that Michelle Thompkins put these memories I have on a canvas, accurately depicting my own thought processes in a way that others can also understand and relate to.
