Marie J. Thompson
Portraits and Still Life
If a picture speaks a thousand words, a portrait speaks volumes more. A portrait should capture the spirit and immortalize the likeness of a loved one. There can be no finer or lasting tribute than the traditional painted portrait. Marie Thompson is a portrait artist with a studio in downtown Nashville, Indiana since 1970.
An artists' studio nestled into an artists' colony.
Nashville, Indiana has been known as an artists' colony
since 1907 when T.C. Steele bought 211 acres south of Belmont,
and began construction of the "House of the Singing Winds".
A member of the famed "Hoosier Group of artists, Steel is
still among Indiana's best-known painters.
T.C. Steele's home, studio and grounds now comprise the T.C. Steel State Historic Site, nine scenic miles southwest of Nashville.
