Artist Statement:

A gallery Director once asked this artist why she worked and produced. Her answer was, "It is my time, Now." As a Virginia teacher, she has helped thousands of people solve numerous creative problems. Upon retirement, the time was available to pursue her artistic approaches.

During 8 years, she has concentrated in print making, putting color into etchings by using multi-colored places, and various inking techniques. She taught in the public schools for 27 years and enjoyed all of it. This year she has been teaching art to pre-school and lower and upper elementary. It was strictly a volunteer project, but she enjoyed it with good results.

Dorothy came to Richmond upon retirement after being a member of cooperative galleries in Northern Virginia: "The Loft Gallery, Occoquan, Virginia, "The Art League", Torpedo Factory, Alexandria and the Washington Print Makers Gallery, Washington, D.C.. She likes sharing the responsibilities of bringing art to the general public. Richmond has become her home now and she looks forward to its energetic art spirit.
