Wyanne Thompson's Profile

About

My name is pronounced Y-anne, not Wayne. I used to not like it, but later decided it's a cool name for an artist. I’ve been a full-time artist for the past 20 years. I have been blessed to have my work in collections all over the world. My work has also been licensed by the eclectic boho company, Natural Life and several greeting card companies. I am currently represented exclusively by Art Licensing.com for products. And I am seeking gallery representation for original paintings.

In late 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage IV oral cancer. It was a shock since I never smoked, and was otherwise, relatively healthy. I underwent a major 13-hour surgery, losing my entire tongue and 66 lymph nodes. Followed by chemo, radiation and a year grueling long recovery process.

I underwent a major 13-hour surgery, losing my entire tongue and 66 lymph nodes. Followed by chemo, radiation and a year grueling long recovery process. I lost my ability to talk clearly and I take all of my nutrition from a stomach feeding tube.. Thankfully, I’m still cancer free and winning the battle with the beast. I am extremely lucky that I don’t have to talk in order to paint. Now, I’m painting more than ever! The process has taught me to live in the moment and not take anything for granted. I now consider "the Big C" a gift.

I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband and two children. A spotted mini dachshund and a dozen aquariums of Betta fish, shrimp and snails keep me company in my studio every day, while I do what I love....paint. Life is grand!
