Dorothy Lorenze paints contemporary still life using the classical atelier method of oil painting. Her representational paintings realistically render translucency, reflection and texture. She finds inspiration in the surprising moments of unexpected color and beautiful patterns of reflection in familiar objects and enjoys celebrating the simple forms of nostalgic and evocative subjects. Dorothy's painting studies include courses at the Art Students League, New York Academy of Art, workshops with Abbey Ryan, Qiang Huang and private mentoring with Todd M. Casey of Grand Central Academy. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, Allied Artists of America, Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club of NY, American Women Artists, Edward Hopper House Art Center and Kent Art Association in CT.
