G. Bjorn Thorkelson was born in Orange, CA. He has been working as an illustrator for the last 13 years and is currently making the transition to fine art. He currently shows at Gasov and Gurule in Scottsdale and The Wilcox Gallery in Jackson.
A native of Southern California, Bjorn lives with is wife Connie and four boys, T'Jae, Braden, Shawn and Riley in his Southeastern Idaho studio/home. Art has been his passion since early childhood and he cannot remember wanting to do anything else. His early "crayon studies" of kindergarten took on more importance as he realized that he wanted to be an artist. "I've always loved to draw," he says, "it's as simple as that. Painting is merely an extension of that desire".

Due minuti passano
in un secondo mentre
ti guardo e sei
sei già mia

 Un pensiero nobile
M'avvolge e nutre
Parole dolci
E qualche
Divino capriccio
In un piacere primordiale

Pochi istanti
s'apprestano a venire alla memoria
in fila come formiche da battaglia
al mio disagio del mattino
Fortuna so difendermi...
