About The Artist

“Pastels and children have a freshness and spontaneity I love.
How lucky can an artist be to have found such a niche?”

Dodie has portrait clients all over the country, working with them to create very personal art that combine the clients' ideas with her artist's eye. She lives in Phoenix, works and shows often in the San Diego and Denver areas. She has taught many classes, including at The Colorado Institute of Art, and given seminars and critiques for many art groups.
