Kurt Thorson, Orcas Island, Washington, USA
Member Since January 2007
Artist Statement Kurt Thorson 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 18 years he has lived on Orcas Island. He earns his living on these remote islands as a carpenter and photographer. Largely self-taught, Mr. Thorson has 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 has been nurtured by years of daily contact in a rich enviroment. His work has illustrated books, cards, calendars and magazines.
