Andrew Thompson


The nice thing about painting fish is that I can live vicariously through other fishermen and their more grand adventures. On a personal level, it is also away for me to experience a fish that I probably will not have the opportunity to fish for, such as the 6-foot Bluefin tuna I painted recently.

Andrew Thompson is an artist and craftsman whose signature works of fish and wildlife unite multiple disciplines including painting, woodworking, traditional bookbinding and design.  Each piece is an artistic inquiry into the natural world and draws from a deep pool of influences.  


Andrew’s work is included in prominent private collections throughout the country.  He was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He spent summers in Lake George, in New York's Adirondack mountains.


He lived and worked in the Adirondacks after graduating from college. It was there that a friend took him fishing. In 1999, when Hurricane Floyd hit Lake George, and Thompson returned to Brooklyn.


Serendipity led him to a bar in his Brooklyn neighborhood, where the bartender turned out to be an avid fly fisherman. When the bartender finished his Saturday shifts, and closed the bar at 4 a.m., Thompson would pick him up and they would drive to the Catskills and fly fish.


The practice of fly fishing has led Thompson to focus on fish and other wildlife in his artwork. He not only paints, but also does woodworking, bookbinding and graphic design.


Andrew Thompson has two sons. He divides his time between his home in Brooklyn and his house in Hague, New York, on Lake George.
