Dorothy was born and raised in Prince Rupert, British Columbia and has been painting oils for many years.
Her grandparents and mother are Tsimshian from the Village of Port Simpson, members of the Lax Kw Alaams Band, Gitwilgyoots Tribe.
She is deeply moved by scenes of Aboriginal life and the spirits of the great totem poles. Although the Earth has reclaimed many of these majestic monuments, they live on. She continues to paint these scenes as she travels to the villages and towns along the coast and interior of British Columbia.
The poles of the Tsimshian Nation and those standing along the Skeena River, Kitwanga, Moricetown and Hazeltown are magic to the artists brush and Dorthy is humbled to capture their true beauty.
