Dorothy has had one-woman shows in galleries in San Francisco, Carmel, Irvine, Newport Beach, Palm Springs, Beverly Hills, New Orleans, and Barbizon, France. Her paintings are currently on display at the Cohen Abee Gallery in San Francisco, and New Masters Gallery in Carmel, California.

She is a charter member of the Women in the Arts Museum in Washington DC with her works are included in the museum’s Library Research Center.
Dorothy paints what she loves: Paris flower marts, and cafes, Italy, Napa Valley, and the San Francisco Conservancy of Flowers. She has a keen eye and is drawn to the beauty that surrounds us.
Collectors in both the US and internationally are drawn to Dorothy’s paintings for her intutive use of light and color, reminiscent of the French impressionists. Her paintings are included in the corporate collections of Estee Lauder, Sharper Image, and the Pebble Beach Lodge. She is also popular with private collectors worldwide who love the grace and beauty Dorothy’s paintings bring to their collections.
