Liz Thoresen

Liz Thoresen was born in San Francisco, California, pursued her artistic passion from an early age and became an Art teacher in 1973. Her interest at the time was Ceramics and she moved to Australia where she taught High School art and Ceramics at Caulfield Institute of Technology in Melbourne. After returning to the United States in 1980, she and her husband owned and operated a veterinary clinic... for 26 years. She has since retired and has been able to pursue her love of painting full time. She has participated in many local and national group and solo shows. Her art has been published in two books and on the cover of the international magazine, the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association. She is a member of the the Acrylic Painters USA, and the International Society of Experimental Artists.

"One of the things I most enjoy about creating is not being able to predict an outcome. My landscapes sometimes begin with a preconceived idea of what the end result "should" look like but I become the observer as the painting unfolds into its own interpretation. As an intuitive painter, I allow color, texture, line, shape, pattern, and scale to dictate their own direction. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I derive inspiration from the surrounding landscapes and the lighting unique to this area. Almost always, nature is my resource for color palettes."
