Welcome to
Amy Thornton Artworks!

Amy Thornton is a contemporary expressionistic painter currently based in Denver. As founder and director of Amy Thornton Artworks for over three decades, she is known for her vibrant, expressionistic paintings on Plexiglas which seem to float in space.

Infused with the tension between chaos and order, Thornton’s work celebrates the dichotomies of extravagant energy with the elegance and rich complexities of a quiet presence. Presented in three distinct formats: Plexiglas, Nucleus, and Full-field style—Thornton’s signature work is filled with the visual grammar of vibrant colors, calligraphic lines and richly layered textures.
