Sheila Thompson is a self-taught Toronto-based fibre artist, and at heart a bio-geographer. She employs the power and versatility of wet felting to create vibrant impressionistic landscapes and richly textured abstracts. Her work is noted for incorporating unusual organic materials, with a rich and bold pallet to form a visually contoured presentation. Her work is in private collections in Canada, US, Switzerland, Germany, the Caribbean and the UK. She is a curator of the travelling textile exhibition Edge of the Forest (edgeoftheforest.ca) sponsored by Ontario Arts Council and Surface Design Association. She is active in local artist development organizations. She can be found in a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibitions in Toronto.
