I launched Toni Thornton Art in 2017 after studying Art through Leeds Arts University and the University of Huddersfield and I am also a qualified teacher of Art and Textiles at Secondary level. In a world of ever-growing social media interaction and home accounts, Instagram quickly became the perfect platform to showcase my designs. I was initially asked to create a series of bespoke pieces for a new home project and since then I have been privileged enough to produce Artwork for home and interior spaces and projects all over the world; including here in England, America, Amsterdam, Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain and more. I am so excited to continue growing collectors all over the world.
As a keen explorer of texture and surface, I find inspiration for my paintings from many sources. Often the marks within my paintings are inspired by the very space that the artwork is to be displayed; for example, when creating bespoke artworks for existing properties, I am able to see the room, feel the space, gather inspiration and find beauty in the items already within it. This could be the knots hiding in the wooden staircase, the marble running through the fireplace, the linen allowing partial light to trickle in through the window, which set the tone for the artwork itself. I also draw much of my inspiration from the rural land, looking at landscapes, wildflowers, and hidden bays.
Each piece of artwork you see at tonithorntonart.com has been lovingly designed and created to add elegance, drama, decoration, and interest to any space. With roots stemming from mark making, textiles and surface pattern, my artwork offers abstract layers and unique compositions, each with depth and an abstraction which allows the painting to be perceived differently by every viewer.
This website allows you to shop the latest collection of original paintings and also high quality Giclee canvas prints in a range of colour palettes and framing options to suit your style and space. All of the original pieces you see on the website are one of a kind. The framed canvas prints you’ll find on the website are of limited edition and only 100 of each painting will be produced; these prints will be hand signed and numbered once purchased. Along with artwork, on the website, you’ll also find our range of luxury cushion covers, each carefully hand finished with beautiful piping detail.
Buying artwork can be daunting, however at Toni Thornton Art, we are always here to help. Artwork can add that finishing touch to bring the interior décor together. If the prints available here aren’t perfect for you, you could contact us to tailor one of the prints to your specific needs, or to commission a bespoke piece of art unique to you; there’s more examples of bespoke works on our Instagram page too. If we can do anything to help, please just get in touch.
Thank you so much for choosing Toni Thornton Art.
