"To me, art should portray a sense of glory that gives the viewer 'hope' beyond circumstances. One may think this lofty attempt to portray such sensations as 'hope', 'peace' and 'joy' with mere paint is ridiculous. And it really is, I suppose. However, the process of this attempt always rejuvenates my soul!""

The glory and splendor of God's creation is the central theme portrayed in Dorothy's heartfelt paintings.

"I am thankful that God put me in a family who has lived in the Charleston area for many generations, and that our traditions of a saltwater and farming lifestyle have continued. This rustic up-bringing has influenced and inspired me since childhood with a passion to savor the splendor of the Lord's creation! To me, art should portray a sense of glory that gives the viewer 'hope' beyond circumstances. This endless task of looking for such scenes and compositions renews my own hope and peace that Jesus is sovereign and good remains if we stop to look and ponder. One may think this lofty attempt to portray such sensations as 'hope', 'peace' and 'joy' with mere paint is ridiculous. And it really is, I suppose. However, the process of this attempt always rejuvenates my soul!"
