Dorothy was a fountain of creativity with prodigious talent and energy.
Every day of her adult life found her at work, drawing and painting. From 1954 until the week before she died,
she taught at her art school for children, giving her ample time for her own work.
She worked in oils, watercolor, acrylics, pencil, pen, pastels, crayon, charcoal, ceramics, enamel, and
other media, producing landscapes, figure studies, portraits,
still lifes, abstracts, and images difficult to classify. She made prints from copper etchings, woodcuts,
and silk screens. (In the early 1950s, with another
artist, she started a business to produce silk screened greeting cards; this
site displays a single example.) She made collages in
paper, glass, and odd materials. She wrote and illustrated children's stories.
At her school, always a beehive of activity, she taught generations of children, many of whom are now professional artists,
and her weekly figure-drawing sessions for adults went on for decades.
