This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Terry Thompson is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, where he currently lives and works.  He received his MFA from San Jose State University after working many years in Silicon Valley as an equipment engineer.

The subject of his paintings is old signage that has somehow avoided the wrecking ball - signs that have lived.  Terry sees these signs as historically and emotionally charged metaphors for beating the odds and standing the test of time, so he renders rust and faded paint to imbue his paintings with a sense of humanity and history.  "I want my paintings to reveal the hidden beauty in the mundane, the banal, and the often overlooked," he says.  His paintings can be found in public and private collections across the U.S. and as far away as Australia.  Thompson's work resides in the permanent collections of The San Jose Museum of Art, The Nevada Museum of Art, The California Museum of History, Women and the Arts - Sacramento, and The de Saisset Museum of Art at Santa Clara University.
