Surrealistic mixed-media collage artworks by Laura Thompson featuring meticulously cut vintage magazine images on painted backgrounds. These elements collide to create humorous, absurd and impossible “little worlds.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Laura Thompson is an American mixed media and collage artist based in Virginia. Her contemporary and surrealist work combines meticulously cut imagery from vintage magazines with abstract and representational painting to create dream-like and amusing compositions.
Growing up on the fringe of a wealthy suburb of Rochester, NY, she was exposed to levels of privilege and hypocrisy that she found objectionable. From early on she honed the coping skills of humor and sarcasm. However, it wasn’t until after years of teaching art to middle schoolers that she began incorporating these themes into her own work.
ART CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
Laura is an excellent artist and teacher. I just took her workshop on making carved stamped holiday cards and it was great. She patiently explained the process, walked us through the steps and encouraged our creativity. Don’t miss the opportunity to take one of Laura’s classes!.

I've taken several classes with Laura and they are always well planned and organized. She provides a fantastic structure to nurture each individual's creativity from a thoughtful, positive perspective and my creations consistently exceed my expectations with her support!
Just finished up an delightful series of oil painting classes with Laura and definitely recommend you check them out! The course was well organized, and even though classes were a week apart, Laura's relaxed and friendly approach made it easy for us to revisit topics from previous weeks. She's a natural teacher and genuinely cares about her student's success!
4 REASONS YOU SHOULD DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH REAL ART
Got a big blank spot on your wall that needs some eye candy? Or are you looking for a statement piece to pull the room together? Your first thought might be to head to the home decor section of a big chain store. They have “art” there, and it’s relatively cheap, and it’s usually run-of-the-mill or on-trend, so it’ll go with anything, right?
