Thank you for taking the time to hang out with me for a minute. I'm Pamela Thompson. I'm a self taught artist based out of Atlanta, GA and working all over.
My artistic and painting experience started young along side my father who was a painter. I was always drawing from a very young age. Starting around age 10 I found I loved working along side my dad. I loved learning mixing colors, contrasting colors and transforming an ordinary space into a beautiful room. I was always amazed how just a color change could change the entire mood of a room.
I was always encouraged by my parents in my drawing and creativity. In 1999 I started really concentrating on my faux and decorative art skills. It was the perfect marriage of all my experience, skill and interest in painting, color, creativity and design. Starting with my own home, then friends and neighbors' homes. I painted faux marble mantles, murals and tweaked furniture and light fixtures to make them perfect.

A local contractor saw my work and asked me to do work for him. It started with accent walls or small bathrooms and gave me lots of creative freedom. That started the faux finish journey of bigger projects developing my faux finish and mural skills for many years.
In 2007 I left corporate to pursue my dream of being a full time decorative artist and faux finish professional. I finally had the time to develop and hone my creative decorative, faux finishing and mural a skills.
After requests and encouragement from clients and designers I started experimenting fine art on canvas. Early into my fine art endeavor I had a client that fell in love with a piece she saw a picture of, and asked to see it in person. Although she loved the piece, she was disappointed that it was way too small for her space. At that point I concentrated on large and over sized art, that would fit this spaces in homes I was already working in. Once again it was a natural fit after years of working on walls and ceilings. The reception my art received was so positive it really surprised and encouraged me to keep experimenting and creating my own style. I fell in love with the freedom modern abstract art allows me. I love bold colors, textures and metallics. All three have become a hallmark of my work. My primary styles are modern abstract mixed media, textures and fluid art. Although I have taken commissions of other styles as requested.
