Helen Thompson

I’m a visual artist based in Lancaster. I studied BA(Hons) Art: Practice & Theory at Lancaster University. In 2019 I learned that I am neurodivergent, which became the catalyst for me to pursue my artistic goals.

My artwork is inspired by movement, the body and natural forms. My background in elite gymnastics has influenced my fascination in the human form and the way the body moves. I enjoy experimenting with different materials, methods, and techniques; working across multiple media including drawing, painting, and video art.

In early 2022 I was awarded Arts Council England funding for my ‘Development Your Creative Practice’ project, titled ProPriOception.  The project explores acrobatic movement through drawing, painting and video. My work in progress exhibition can be view here.
