Welcome to my website. I am a Graphic Designer/ Visual Artist who works in many different media from print, and web design to acrylic painting and pointillism.
I did work for Ecology Ottawa, Capital Real Estate Partners, and Mad Moose Television. I graduated St Lawrence College with an advanced diploma in Graphic Design in 2010.
I am also open to doing volunteer work for an important cause to help build my portfolio.
Over the last several years, I have created a lot of artwork and have won awards for my acrylic paintings. Check out my Art Blog at https://shawnthompson.net/galleries/
I have entered 5 shows through Focus Art, and won an honourable mention in 2016 for my pointillism painting “The Blue Waters Of April” I also won a second-place prize in 2018 for my “Tree Swallow Pointillism Painting.”
Over the last 5 years, I’ve also sold a few of my paintings.
Art and design have been a part of my life from a young age, and have always had a deep interest in nature and the outdoors. Many of my paintings are inspired by my photography work.
Besides acrylic painting, I also do watercolour and pencil drawings, but do this more as practice before I create an acrylic painting. A lot of thought goes into my art and it takes several months from concept to final execution.
