Sara Thompson

Sara Thompson is an artist local to Blacksburg; or as much of a local as she can be, having lived in over twenty locations from New Hampshire to Arizona. With many family moves growing up, art was a family focus. Her father was a woodworker, her mother practices thread craft, her older brother constantly sketching, and Sara took inspiration from all of them. Art was her constant across the seven schools she attended, the variety of teachers supplementing her self-taught skills. She found recognition early, having been chosen to have her photography featured in the student gallery of the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, VA in 1999. Having taken a hiatus from art after high school, Sara is picking up where she left off. Exploring different mediums and techniques, she’s currently experimenting with acrylic abstracts inspired by the late Jonas Gerard.
