Cece Thorpe

CeCe Thorpe grew up in St. Paul, MN in an artistic family. At an early age she developed a love of art. Cece took painting workshops in the Hudson area and was set on developing her style. She started with oil paintings of: giraffes, herons, cape buffalos and roosters. Cece’s style is a combination of painterly realism, with a focus on expression and individual personality in all of her animal faces. She achieves this by starting with a good drawing, then pushing around the paint with a pallet knife…like frosting a cake. She also likes to play with color, resulting in whimsical and colorful paintings. She finds inspiration in everything, and complete joy in the painting process. Each oil painting is infused with an essential oil to fully involve the senses. She also works with acrylic paint, doing a style called an acrylic pour and is having fun teaching her two young children the style.
