Dorothy Collier

Dorothy Collier is the mixed media artist of Dorothy Art and the host of Positively Creative, a podcast for creative entrepreneurs. While growing up in the south, running around her grandmother’s antique shops, she quickly found a love for all things unique…and antique. By painting oil on canvas, using backgrounds of paper from weathered books, Dorothy’s pieces
become narrative. She paints to create a sense of whimsical beauty and in some pieces, hopes to prompt the viewer into a child-like happiness. She uses simplistic elements to mirror her folk art influences and enjoys using quick gestural lines to give the vintage subjects a strong, soulful voice. Dorothy received her B.A. in Studio Art and Psychology from the University of Mississippi in 2009 and her MAT in Art Education at the University of Memphis in 2011. She resides in Memphis,Tennessee with her husband, John, their new addition, Johnny, and their yorkie, Oxford. Dorothy’s work appears in private home collections and gift retailers throughout ?the southeast.

SINCE YOU’RE HERE…

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Talent Magazines than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Talent Magazines’ style of journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we are doing it since 2009 because we believe that every talent needs an outlet and we want to be that outlet.

If everyone who reads our magazines, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $10, you can support Talent Magazines – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
