About the Artist:
Judy Thorley’s home and studio are in Grimsby, Ontario at the foot of the beautiful Niagara Escarpment, an area known for its picturesque fruit orchards and vineyards. Grimsby is the beginning of the scenic Niagara “Wine Route.”
Judy is a signature member of the Toronto Watercolour Society and an active participant in local and Toronto art shows. Although she originally began painting in transparent watercolor, she is presently exploring mixed media with acrylics, collage and photo transfer. Judy enjoys working on distressed surfaces with multiple layers, and she is inspired by many things, both natural and manmade, from decaying old walls covered with peeling posters to the latest fashion magazines.
Her works appear in many private and corporate collections around the world.
Dogbotz Boneyard has collected the Art Nouveau-inspired artwork of Judy Thorley because of her natural balance of the natural with the manufactured, the architectural with the figurative, and the established with the innovative. Her use of multiple layers of colorful elements, distressed surfaces, and uneven textures evokes scenes that portray mythical subjects or images that harken back to another era. And so, from our Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery of Art for your own personal collection, we present Judy Thorley’s Chained.
