Lisa ThompsonLisa Thompson

Lisa Isadora Thompson received her BA from University of South Florida in 2001 and her MFA from Florida State University in 2004 where she taught for a year following graduation. Since 2005, she has taught classes at North Florida College including Painting I & II, Drawing I & II, Design I & II, Ceramics I & II, Special Topics (studio art), and Humanities Art. In addition to her teaching duties, Thompson is the curator and director of the Hardee Center for the Arts exhibiting both local and national talent. In 2009, she founded the NFC Public Art Program which allows for a yearly visiting artist to create a permanent piece of public art for the college while engaging the students through various workshops.

In her most recent drawing and painting series, So Tiny in a Wide World, Thompson illustrates the seemingly infinite possibilities and magic of life through the lens of childhood using her own children as subjects. In these captured, quiet moments, the background is deemphasized and imagery is removed to suggest the expanse of the world and highlight the imaginative mind of a child.
