Statement

RoByn Thompson is a Jersey Girl born and bred. After several futile attempts to escape to NYC, she has now finally embraced it. She loves (in alphabetical order) art, chocolate, magick, sex and sleep. She is curious. (cu·ri·ous-adjective : 1.eager to learn or know; inquisitive. 2. arousing or exciting speculation, interest, or attention through being inexplicable or highly unusual; odd; strange: a curious sort of person; a curious scene).
She paints people then shoots them, much like those tag and release programs. She has an art degree from Rutgers University and is very proud to be the only member of her graduating class to have had both paintings and sculptures on display in the Guggenheim. Ok, so they were face paintings and balloon sculptures but they still count! When not painting, shooting or sleeping she can sometimes be found singing loudly and off-key or dancing like a White girl.
Her family consists of James, whose moral compass points to the true north and Ian, their son, who tries so very hard. She also loves Tom Robbin and Christopher Moore books. Her secret literary vices include Cosmo Magazine & Death Merchant books. Her favorite movies are 5000 Fingers of Dr. T and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Musically, she's a Deadhead, loves Warren Zevon, Steve Forbert and Mike Oldfield. She is happiest playing with her computer, paints, camera, books and wrapped in her Hello Kitty blankie. She can be distracted with chocolate and shiny things.
