Shawn Paul Thompson Art
Shawn Paul Thompson is an abstract contemporary painter who works with acrylic and mixed mediums. Shawn’s process begins with layered applications, which are peeled back to reveal a bigger story, feeling, or world. Shawn Paul prefers to use his palette knife and brush to build and reveal narratives in his work. Shawn Paul is always on the move and this is reflected in his art.
Shawn Paul’s piece “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, Anymore” is full of layers. A beautiful burst of pedals is how I would describe it, all coming together to form an angelic flower. This piece would compliment any room in your home, and it’s the perfect gift for the abstract art lover in your family.

Kristyn Watterworth is a painter looking to bring a little more brightness into each passing day. She fell in love with painting at the age of twelve, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University. Travelling gives Kristyn inspiration for her paintings.
