Silas Thompson (b. 1990) was raised in Idaho where he and his wife live. His passion for drawing and painting was instilled at an early age; was fostered by his parents and manifest by the filling of countless sketchbooks and refrigerator magnets. Setting out on annual backpacking trips with his father he began to treasure the distinct birthmarks and icons of beautiful rivers, valleys, and mountains that carve through the high desert and vast farmlands of the West. But it is the distinctly imputed beauty in creation, which points him constantly to God for continued inspiration, is what drives his desire to create.
After college he continued his education by strengthening his fundamentals and work ethic in painting through five years of apprenticeships with renowned artists Caleb Meyer and Robert Moore. He would also be remiss to not to give credit to his beautiful wife and friend, Bianca, from whom he receives greatest support.
