My name is Aaron Michael Thompson. I am a professional painter whose Paintings and Drawings have been exhibited in Samuel M. V. Hamilton Museum at The Pennsylvania academy of the Fine Art. I am represented by Drawing Room Gallery in Greenwich Ct., as well as Private collections. A native of Charleston, South Carolina, I earned my BFA in Illustration, from Savannah College of Art and Design. After being awarded The Merit Scholarship from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, I moved to Philadelphia where I earned my Masters Degree in Painting.I attended the Barnes Artist Residency in Umbria, Italy during the month of July 2014. Currently, I am an Adjunct Professor at Arcadia University and the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design, I work for Gamblin Artist Colors as an Educational Lecturer of Visual Arts, and continue my studio practice at The Mill Street Studio in Philadelphia, PA.
I created this blog as a place where I can gather my thoughts, findings, inspirations, paintings and drawings that baffle me, my progress, and my work.
