Biography   Catherine Thornton

Catherine Thornton earned her BFA in Painting and Sculpture from Longwood College (currently Longwood University) in Farmville Virginia, while in her mid 30’s, but she was not able to consistently pursue her art career for another fifteen years. In those fifteen years, however, ideas, concepts, and techniques were explored, diligently filed away on several sketchpads, envelopes and dinner napkins and assigned to the future.

Her professional launch came about through a summer course at Penland School of Crafts. Thornton is tenaciously inquisitive with an appetite for discovery. She states, “I regret the day when I wake up to find no new thing, no reason to grow.” Her work reflects that attitude.
