As a veterinarian, and a lifelong observer of human nature, I have noticed that most human beings carry deep within them a special feeling about animals and a longing for a connection with them.
Capturing this feeling in a beautiful and artistic fashion that can be displayed on one’s wall is the goal of my photography.
It is my hope that I can produce an image that is not only beautiful in an aesthetic sense, but one that can also lift the spirit, and provide a soothing reminder of our own deeper connection with the animal kingdom.

Jay Thompson is the creator, curator and keeper of a large collection of curios that he collectively calls CAT WORKS. He works like a painter, but instead of using a brush he invents situations of altered realities with digital processors. By using original and repurposed vintage photography, along with heavily painted and designed elements, that he layers and meticulously stitches together.
The artist strives to produce a strong visual experience. SOME storytelling contained within is multi-layered and complex, MANY reveal deeper meanings with further viewing. ALL are easy to live with even as they invite
study and comment. I would compared this sophisticated work to a "three dimensional New Yorker cartoon"...and sometimes, William Hogarth's "mini morality plays".

My inspiration comes from nature painted with vibrant colors and impressionistic fell that you get from using soft pastels. Many of my landscapes depict lakes, rivers, streams, etc, sunrises and sunsets.
