Artist Statement

Gold Finch with Garden Flower Borders

Dorothia's background in natural science illustration, fine art and
design has segued into the licensing and publishing market.

As with life, to be an artist is to find a path that brings joy, growth and change.
What keeps the journey interesting are the challenges and new passions discovered along the way.

Early in my career, I enjoyed creating technical and precise illustrations and paintings. This passion shifted, as I began trying looser techniques to create a mood and emotion.
Not long ago, I ventured down a path that rekindled my childhood passion — children's books.

Although I continue to paint and sketch nature, I have been combining my love of nature and imagination for children's books.

Gift Design Experience

In 2003, Painted Wings Studio launched a gift collection
for the museum gift store market. The collection featured the
botanical discoveries of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Dorothia researched the botanicals and painted the original
watercolor paintings. From that she designed each of the gift items
that were marketed through Painted Wings Studio®.

The quality, pricing and the cohesive display of the collection
appealed to the high standards of the museum stores. These note
cards, decorative kitchen towels, shirts, bookmarks, soaps and magnets
sold beyond expectations during the first season of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial.
