Artist Dan Thornhill’s interest in art started at an early age. A native of Dallas, Texas, Thornhill graduated from Dallas Baptist College with a degree in biology. In 2001, he began studying art and in December 2013, Dan graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a Master of Arts degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in painting. As an artist, Thornhill continually grows and emerges in his search for knowledge and truth. His colorful paintings reflect his optimist attitude and friendly personality, as well as his joy of life and whimsical spirit.
Dan Thornhill’s artwork is included in permanent collections at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the Historic Arkansas Museum and the Cancer Center at UAMS in Little Rock, the Grand Prairie Arts Center in Stuttgart, Arkansas, the Texarkana Regional Arts Center, along with other public and private collections. Currently, Thornhill teaches painting at the Arkansas Arts Center Museum School and lives in Little Rock with his artist wife, Anne.
Artist Anne Thornhill has been an artist all of her life, and art has been a tool for her to escape stress and anxiety. Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Anne spent most of her life as a stay at home mother and worked in various art related jobs such as a window designer, vintage lace company, and director of a local chamber of commerce. In 1998, after raising her children, Anne went back to college at Arkansas Tech University and graduated with a double major in psychology and art. Later, she graduated with a Master of Social Work degree and in her private practice as a psychotherapist, she has incorporated art therapy into her work. Anne’s paintings are colorful and energetic. Her artwork is included in the permanent collection at the Grand Prairie Arts Center in Stuttgart, along with other public and private collections. Anne lives in Little Rock with her artist husband, Dan.
