Victoria Thornton is a Fluid Acrylic Artist who lives in the Quail Creek community in Green Valley/Sahuarita, AZ. She is fascinated by color, variations and shapes that she can create with fluid paints. She loves experimenting with textures, tones and light. She is currently working on a series of abstract geodes, resin art and her newly created Lux Art using crushed mirror, stones, metallic powders and resins to create luxurious sparkle and dimension.
Even at a very young age, Victoria Thornton was in love with painting. Although the yearning never left her, it would be another 45 years before Victoria picked up a paint brush. Victoria began painting in watercolor until oil painting peaked her interest. She worked with Esther Rogaway from Tubac and improved her skills.
Between raising her daughter, and managing the Mind to Motion Pilates studio she owns with her husband, Victoria spent all her free time exploring her art. She created a series of pieces in oil and mixed media she called “The Many Faces of Women” which was very popular.
Victoria switched to acrylic and discovered fluid art, mixing the paint with mediums to make it flow. Her fluid artwork lends itself to even more spontaneity. She describes it as “painting with warm honey – it has a mind of its own!” She creates commissioned pieces both locally and nationally.
Victoria Thornton is a member of the Tubac Center of the Arts and the Quail Creek Fine Arts Painting Club. Her work is currently being shown in the Indigo Desert Ranch Gallery (inside K.Newby gallery) in Tubac and at her studio M2M Studio in Green Valley. She sells locally and nationally and accepts commissions.
