Getting to know Dorothy…
Mostly self-taught, my goal is to create something that I will enjoy and get excited about. The work has to stand on its own. I like my paintings to tell it like it is.
Born and raised in Easter Nebraska, I’ve always loved nature and the outdoors. Wild Life Artist, Robert Bateman has been a big inspiration.
During my college years I took as many Art courses as allowed. After earning a B.A. from The University of Omaha and my M.A. from The University of Nebraska I taught. When I retired from teaching, I started painting seriously. Needing to reacquaint myself with different media…I enrolled in workshops with Artists Bill Alexander and Charles Rogers, Colo., Dean Davis, Ohio, Rose Edin, Minn., Zoltan Sabo and Sue Crawford Ariz., to name a few.
I have participated in numerous exhibits and have been honored with winning several awards. My mind is always full of possibilities for a painting. I paint what I know. “Good Art always shines.”
My paintings are decorating walls here in the U.S. as well as Canada, Scotland, Mexico and Japan.
