My paintings are interior landscapes made visible. They are views of the worlds explored through my emotions, reactions and memories.
Thorie was born on the Canadian Prairies, moved to Britain in 1993, and settled to stay in Exeter in 1999.
She was awarded her Master of Fine Arts (double honours) in 1982 from the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada.
Paintings on paper and canvas can be viewed at the bowie Gallery in Totnes and Clifton Fine Art in Bristol.
Outside of the studio, Thorie has helped to bring art education to remote First Nations communities in Canada. She is passionate about the Art in Hospitals programme, and her art allows her to support other charity and community initiatives.
