Kurt Thorson, Orcas Island, Washington, USA
Member Since January 2007
Artist Statement Kurt Thorson, 1952-2018, was born in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, and spent much of his childhood in the islands. An intense involvement in the arts as a potter led him to the Cornish School, where he studied painting and drawing from 1975-78 . After a period of world travel, he returned to Waldron Island, where he lived for ten years in a cabin on The Nature Coservancy. For the past 20 years he lived on Orcas Island and earned his living as a carpenter and photographer. Largely self-taught, Mr. Thorson used his unique background to approach nature and wildlife photography with an artist's eye for form and balance combined with a craftsman's demand for quality. His sensitivity toward his subjects was nurtured by years of daily contact in a rich enviroment. His work has illustrated books, cards, calendars and magazines.
