Meet the Artist
Dorothy Collier is the mixed media artist of Dorothy Art and the host of Positively Creative, a podcast for creative entrepreneurs. She is the cofounder of Arrow, a future one-roof creative district in Memphis, Tennessee.
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.
