A Tribute to a Truly Original Mixed Media Artist

By: Shelby Lee Walsh - Published: • References:
Kelly Thompson is a very unique photographer and illustrator with fiery orange hair. Like her bold choice in hair dye, Thompson is not afraid to make eyebrow-raising art by mixing media and expressing a less-than-subtle degree of sensuality.

The Australian artist has worked on everything from magazine spreads to advertisements and top brands like Covergirl and Nintendo. Her work is riveting and her life enviably exciting, as she's won several prominent awards within the artistic community. Just in 2013 she was awarded the Pride in Print Gold Award.

Thompson keeps pretty busy, so if you want to see her when she's not behind her camera, check out her speaking engagement schedule. This year she was a guest speaker at Semi Permanent in Aukland, RMIT Melbourne and she hosted Nintendo Masterclass. Stats for 12 Reasons Kelly Thompson's Art Rocks Trending: Older & Average
