My name is Cheri Thornton and I live in Helena, MT. I have a degree in Fine Arts from Gonzaga University, a post-baccalaureate certificate in Ceramics from UMASS Dartmouth, and have been both a short-term and summer resident at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts.
I am a wife to a loving husband and a mother to two amazing little humans. My son's middle name is River, my daughter's middle name is Blue. Hence, River+Blue. They are the confluence of so many rivers I have run, leading me into this big, wide wonderful water of parenthood.
I am a gemini. I am an introvert. I am a potter and photographer. I am a drawer and painter. I am a white-water rafter. I am a maker and designer. I am a writer. I love words, written words, stories, and storytelling. I love poetry. I love sunlight and shadows. I love baking, gardening, and reading. I love water and sky. I love my Family. And I love making Art.
