Cecilia Thorell

Contemporary Realist Painter

Cecilia Bio 3Cecilia Thorell is a native of Gothenburg, Sweden. Her interest in art began at an early age, spending time in the studio of her grandfather who was an artist himself. She began creating her own art first with watercolor and then moved into oils in her early teens. Her love of painting eventually led her to The Florence Academy of Art in Italy. It was here that Cecilia honed her skills to draw and paint in the old-master tradition.

Today Cecilia uses her classical training with modern flair to create uniquely contemporary works of art. She has had her work shown in various exhibitions and is represented by galleries in both the United States and Europe.
