Dottie Clark 

Having worked artistically as an Interior Designer for over thirty years, I always had this thought that I could and should paint. I finally made the time to pursue this dream in 2002.
I grew up in Chicago, left home to attend Purdue University and ended up moving to St. Simons Island shortly after graduation. St. Simons has been my home where I raised my family and pursued a career in Interior Design. It was only after my three daughters left home that I pursued my interest in oil painting.  It was love at first brush stroke. Having studied locally under Barbara Mueller, Dr. Ken Wallin and Martha Carpenter, I also have had the opportunity to take workshops in France, Italy and Ireland.I draw my inspirations from the landscapes of the Golden Isles, my family and my travels.

To paint is to live in the moment.
