Thurow has painted for over forty years. She is an award-winning artist who has participated in numerous solo, group, national, regional and local exhibitions. She has taught and mentored drawing, watercolor, color theory, creativity and composition. In addition to fine art she authored and illustrated a book for children and illustrated poetry.
Watercolor and drawing are her primary media. Recently she plays with acrylic and collage.
Located in Sheridan, Wyoming, her studio is affectionately called: “The Salon of Brass Tacks and Unruly Elements”. “Salon” honors the history of females hosting intellectual discourse as well as a place for style…of hair. “Brass Tacks” are the bedrock principles of visual art and “Unruly Elements” are the tools the artist must master.
