About Marsha Thornton

My name is Marsha Thornton, and growing up on a farm, I loved art as a child and have enjoyed doing many art forms. As with most kids, I started out drawing and coloring. While still a child, drawing and coloring soon came to include sewing and needlework. I even earned my Art Badge in Scouts doing some pretty zany stuff with watercolours! I have always enjoyed a challenge and eventually moved to designing crocheted pot holders and afghans as gifts for family and friends. Next in my evolution, I moved on to craft painting - painting on anything that couldn’t move out of my way!

About six years ago I was given an oil painting set for Christmas and began to experiment. I found this to be so satisfying that I was inspired to begin taking art classes, in drawing, acrylic painting and watercolor painting, at a local community center. In 2009, I took six weeks of oil workshops to improve my skills. I continue to study and practice. Painting is the joy in my life.

I presently work mostly in oil, in both wet on wet and traditional techniques, while I still enjoy playing with acrylic, watercolor, and drawing. I am a realist at heart, with a desire to develop a more painterly style. I paint mostly landscapes and flowers and wildlife. I have also done several commissions of flowers and landscapes/seascapes and really enjoy doing commissions. Some of my older paintings have been donated to worthy causes that I support.

Nature is my inspiration. Most of my art is of nature. Nature, to me, is peaceful and beautiful. My paintings and photographs instill those feelings in me, and from comments I have received, I gain satisfaction that they have the same effect on others. When I am painting I am in another world, where nothing else exists – my world is perfect; peaceful and calm.

I have been featured artist on Artsy Shark (April 28, 2012) ... link: http://bit.ly/Ki9MCk
I currently hold the position of Treasurer of the Society of Western Canadian Artists (Edmonton, Alberta).
Memberships include the Edmonton Art Club and Visual Artists Society of Alberta, where I am also an exhibiting member.
