Thorstensen’s works are included in the Masters of the Contemporary Print exhibition on view in the Holtzman MFA Gallery. She has expertise in all printmaking techniques, specializing in hand-pulled, color multi-print media. Her work is part deep personal archive, part printmaking evangelism, woven together in fabrics of color, metaphor and commentary. She is the founder of Printmakers Open Forum and teaches printmaking at the University of the Arts. Her work is included in public collections, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Kenosha Public Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the  Palmer Museum of Art, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (Antwerp) and the Woodmere Art Museum.
