M. Kathryn Thompson lives in Northern California where she finds inspiration for her work from the natural beauty in the small town of Fairfax. She spent her twenties in Seattle where she graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle and has been an Illustrator for 28 years.
“Working in Scratchboard is a joy to me. I work in reverse, scratching away the black ink to reveal the white underneath. On top of that I airbrush transparent acrylic ink. I paint right on the original Scratchboard so I can scratch away highlights in the colored areas.
I work small and have my images enlarged as Gicleé prints.”
Kathryn’s work has been used for beer labels, logos, packaging, cookbooks, brochures, advertising spots, textbooks, editorial, wine labels, web sites, signs, illustrative maps, and just about any other use you can imagine.
