Passionate about art from earliest childhood, Dorothy Robertshaw joyfully works in a wide range of art media, moving effortlessly among oil, acrylic, encaustic wax, pastel, wood, glass and mixed media to achieve her results. Deeply inspired by nature, Dorothy paints from her imagination to create the richly textured, exuberantly colorful water and landscapes she sees in her mind's eye. Since her first exhibition in 1968, Dorothy has created and sold her works nationally. That creative fluidity in Dorothy's art practice inspires her work as an interior designer, a career she has enjoyed for 43 years. She graduated cum laude in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and is an accredited member of the American Society of Interior Design (ASID). "As both an artist and an interior designer, I feel that art is the center jewel of a room. Sometimes my design work flows from a signature piece of art; sometimes it becomes the perfect completion to an allover ode to color, content and form."
