Artist Michelle Thompson uses a striking combination of traditional collage techniques, photography and digital technology to create her pieces, which gives for a very uniquely versatile and constantly evolving body of work.
Thompson’s list of clients include the Royal Mail, BBC, Reebok, Penguin Books, The Guardian, as well as being featured in such publications as Creative Review, and Communication Arts and Graphics International. Currently, Thompson illustrates a regular column for The Globe and Mail in Toronto, Canada.
Thompson is based out of Saffron Walden, UK.
“Editorial work tends to be digital for speed but I still work by
hand when the circumstances allow. More often it’s a combination of
techniques. I have a huge archive of elements collected over the past
15 years. Everything from postcards, books and magazines, to wood
block type, typewriters and printing sets. I use paint and ink, pens
and pencils, as well as my own photography.”
