Heidi Thompson’s Career
After graduating high school, Heidi crossed the Atlantic where she began her artistic training in Switzerland. After that, she studied in both Germany and Hungary, drawing upon a range of different artistic styles and teaching methods that would later inform her unique style of abstract painting. She took all of this back to her home of Canada, where she now lives and works, exhibiting both there and in Europe and the USA.
