About the Artist: Marcus Thorne’s passion for painting began at age five and developed into a career in his teen years, when he often won art competitions, painted commissioned works, and sold his paintings in galleries. He then went into the field of architecture and now specializes in healthcare design. Since 2014 Marcus has been teaching painting classes at public and private events through his company Wine and Canvas San Diego. He enjoys inspiring and empowering people to unleash their creative abilities. Marcus’ contemporary oil paintings are available for commissioned work, art collectors, and interior design needs for corporate and residential settings. Ages 16+ Welcome.
