April Artist - JK Thorsen
JK Thorsen is a full-time artist. She has worked in, and in support of, art and design from an early age, and continued while studying in California and throughout her life. She has her own style.
Helped by many; encouraged by countless others, Thorsen's best art is not motivated by competitions or accolades. Her commercial work - combined with luck and continued production - has allowed her to remain responsible for her non-commercial art. From a creative background, she also studied with and worked alongside Martha Wagner and Dan Boylan.
Often producing in-the-moment, her work revolves around that which she has, revealing experiences, "nature" and the "stories of others" while her ecological focus continues to influence her options.
Thorsen donates artistic time and supplies to those who are in need for whatever reason. Annually, she teaches art to those living with eye disease through UNMC's Weigel Williamson Low Vision Center. She has provided training and curriculum for Omaha's Joslyn Art Museum's Education Department.
