Portare Collection

Conveying the message of new beginnings, new journeys, transporting and carrying, the beautiful eight-piece original ‘Portare’ collection speaks to this special Valentine’s holiday like no other. Each piece has a heart-warming quote hidden within, subtle to the eye but signalling a powerful message when purchased as a gift for your special someone.


Within each of these original paintings, numerous layers gather to echo the building of a relationship with your loved one. Whether it be romantic, familial or friendship, the deeper meaning amongst each piece is suited to many occasions. Beyond the many layers within a select few pieces are hidden brushstrokes of metallic bronze; these glimmers of bronze add depth to each piece while blending in seamlessly to the overall design.

Toni Thornton Art x Abstract Print Collection: Stormy Mist available here.

Featured Limited Edition Print: Stormy Mist

Following the success of one of Toni’s previous abstract designs, Cosy Storm, which sold all of 100 in the edition, Toni wanted to create something with similar textures and tones. Using her signature neutral palette, Toni created this beautiful design using energetic, feathered marks, the use of layering symbolic of a relationship with a loved one slowly building over time.  While slightly cooler in tone than Cosy Storm, Stormy Mist presents a serene abstract design, perfect for an interior space calling for added depth and texture. Tones of white, pale beige, stone and a mixture of greys combine to create an overall stunning piece, perfect for Valentine’s gifting to a loved one.



Toni Thornton Art ‘Fragments’ collection – ‘Florence’ available here.

Fragments Collection

Gifting artwork from the stunning ‘Fragments’ collection is an unrivalled way to show your loved ones how you feel this Valentine’s Day. Each piece is three-dimensional and expressive in nature, conveying a heartfelt message of love to your lucky recipient.


Owing to many beautiful locations across the world, the three-dimensional elements within each of the artworks are reminiscent of our freedom to travel and explore. The travel restrictions in place throughout the past few years has meant that many of us haven’t been able to visit our loved ones in distant destinations and explore the beautiful world in which we are so lucky to live. This collection of 3D artworks could perhaps serve as a landmark to bring beautiful destinations across the world into the interior spaces of your loved ones.
