We have been fortunate to acquire several of Dorrie’s paintings, and they grace the walls of our home. We have also given them to friends as gifts. One hangs in a friend’s home on Seabrook Island, SC, and another, in a three-story beach house on Emerald Island, NC. They add warmth and beauty to every place they adorn. Great works by a great person!
I would like to say a few words about Dorrie. My painting experience is extensive because for several years I hosted workshops for instructors from all over the country. I knew Dorrie’s and I was going to ask her to teach for me, but circumstances had me close my door.
Then I took online classes from Dorrie. WOW! The best experience with a watercolor instructor ever! Fun, knowledgeable, precise instructions and the process left me with paintings that I didn’t know I could do.
Dorrie is the best !!!❤️
Dorrie is my favorite watercolor teacher ever. She is not only a exciting artist, she is a wonderful teacher. She does demonstrations in small bites, then walks around to answer questions and give recommendations. She often helps me turn one of my mistakes into a creative opportunity. Whatever the result of my painting efforts, I never come away without having learned something unexpected and frequently exhilarating. When I look through several years worth of paintings, I understand how what she taught me lingers, and how I continue to think about my work differently because of her.
