Artist
Dorothy Dunn Huntington Beach, California

From childhood on, Dorothy was always eager about painting. Her grandfather encouraged her to graduate from a finger-painting enthusiast to a more mature and serious artist. Dorothy’s approach to her abstract artwork entails pouring paint in transparent layers to create sweeping colors across the canvas. Regardless, she manages to stay true to her childhood roots: “To this day, my clothes and hands always reflect the colors I am working with,” says Dorothy. “And I once again rediscovered the joys of finger-painting with my children!”

    Artist Statement

    Art is a way to express of my wonder of nature. I use the often vibrant, sometimes muted, color combinations one can find outside. I love to explore the California coastline, walking on the wetlands throughout the seasons, enjoying the fresh greens of Spring, warm golds and browns of Summer and Fall, followed by the foggy grays in Winter. The grasses move with the ocean breeze while the water tempts with its ripples of cool greens and blues. I hope the viewer feels the sensuous movement of color and nature while exploring my paintings.

    As a child, I spent hours in my grandfather’s studio watching him paint and inhaling the scent of what I came to remember as the smell of color. He introduced me to the joy of painting and I have continued to revel when opening up rich tubes of juicy color ever since.
