About the Artists
TJ & Lori Thompson
TJ and his wife Lori were both born and raised in rural Illinois and married in 1984. Shortly after they married they moved to Kalispell, Montana and discovered their love for the western lifestyle and cowboy culture. They lived in Colorado for many years but now have made their home in New Mexico.
TJ Thompson has been studying art and artists since childhood. His natural talent in art was recognized early, when he won a statewide drawing competition at the age of 14. Lori's influences in art comes from the many years she has been married to TJ.
Their creative inspiration comes from life experiences. From years of being involved in outdoor education for youth, corporate groups and non-profit organizations, to being wilderness guides and just plain enjoying the great outdoors with family.
TJ's art can been seen in galleries in Telluride CO, Jackson Hole WY and Evergreen CO. These two have retired from traveling doing fine art shows across the country. You can see Both their work exclusively at " The Arizona Fine Art Show" . See this link for details.
Both these artists enjoy time at their New Mexico home creating new art. Coming up with new and unique ideas to stimulate the art world is a never ending pleasure.
