About

My name is Leisa Thompson and I am a visual artist living in Blackwood Victoria. I am also a dancer and psychologist. I have an innate love of movement and the body that comes from a lifetime of dancing. Now after working for many years as a psychologist I have the time to pursue my love of drawing and painting. I am interested in expressive drawing and painting that is immediate and aims to capture the psychology and emotionality of the subject.

Influences

I love Brett Whitely'a drawings. He captures the essence of drawing in this quote- 'The purpose of drawing is to make freshness permanent. Out of billions of seconds of futility, occasionally, sparks of the life force are immutably held forever' I am constantly in search of these moments in my own practice. Camilla Loveridge and Amanda Schunker have also been inspiring influences with their warm encouragement and excellent teaching.
