Welcome to my virtual art studio!
I am Riki Thompson: teacher, artist, and perpetual explorer. My art is often described as whimsical and fun, integrating themes related to travel, nature, animals, and life’s adventures. In addition to cartooning, I love to paint with acrylics, play with watercolor pencils, draw with digital tools, and play with pottery to craft ceramic creations and make mixed-media artwork. The places, people, and animals in the Lil’ Girl Art collection are inspired by my life and adventures. It’s not a coincidence that I bear an uncanny resemblance to the main character Lil’ Girl. I especially love to help people connect with their childlike persona through my cartoons, creating personalized pieces of people and places along the way.
