About Dorri Thyden

Dorri Thyden has been involved in art projects for more than 20 years in Washington, D.C., California and Arizona. Inspired by the vibrant colors and larger than life landscapes of the southwest, she likes to create large, bright and vivid paintings with a creative perspective. She focuses on everyday objects or themes and applies a unique spin and massive splash of color. With her background in government, law and politics, Dorri also gravitates towards creating political art that depicts themes related to civic engagement and awareness.
