Born and raised in rural northern Connecticut Torrant had a passion for art as a young child. The artist graducated from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Fine Art in 1999.
In 1997, Torrant had a semester abroad through the National Student Exchange Program to the University of California Santa Cruz. This is when I was formally introduced to abstract art. I fell in love with the Abstract Expressionists and the Bay Area painters who continue to influence my work today. I returned to UNH to finish my degree in Fine Art with a focus in painting and graduated in 1999.
Since then, Torrant has exhibited her work in galleries and exhibits in CT, MA, CA, and FL. She has sold hundreds of original paintings worldwide.
The artist resides in Conneticut.
