Martha Thorn

Raleigh, NC


Martha Thorn received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Graphic Design from Western Carolina University and began painting in 2007. Her work has been exhibited at GreenHill, The Carrack Modern and other venues throughout the Southeast.  Utilizing her background in graphic design, Thorn is a process painter starting with line and drawing, followed by texture and design, and color being layered on last.  The bold colors are used as vehicles by which she can persuade her audience to look at her work. In her bright and captivating work, she presents the dichotomies of chaos and peace, dirty and clean, and ugliness and beauty in a fresh and authentic way.
