While her career path has led her to teaching and publishing, Dorothy Woolbright has continued to pursue her passions of drawing and painting. Her award winning work has garnered recognition as Best of Show and Director’s Choice in several art shows locally and nationally.

Dorothy works in the direct painting style known as alla prima, preferring to work primarily from life. She works thoughtfully to capture the essence of the subject in front of her as quickly as possible. As she works, her immediate response to the subject creates a connection that is reflected onto the canvas through the paint. Her goal is to create a beautiful expression of that connection in time and space. Frequently, she creates small “daily paintings”, works that are begun and finished in one day. These small works are popular among her collectors.

Her method of study continues to be a combination of studying the masters’ works, taking workshops and lessons, and keeping her drawing skills sharpened by attending weekly life drawing classes. Dorothy prefers to paint and draw from life and she has studied painting still life in oil at the Scottsdale School of Art under Daniel Keys, Jean Chambers, and Kathy Anderson and landscapes in oil under Kathryn Stats. She has continued her study with Qiang Huang and portrait artist, Anna Rose Bain.

She is grateful to her teachers locally, Kelli Folsom, Dennis Parker and Judy McCombs, whose influences have inspired her to continue her creative path.

Dorothy lives in Oklahoma City close to her children and grandchildren and travels extensively for creative inspiration and adventure.
