I got this as an anniversary gift for my partner and I love it! It is unique and expresses our shared love of Memphis and beer. The print is very good quality. I plan on getting it framed.

First off I need to say how beautiful this print was really beautiful is. Sadly it came with a big bend in the top of it from the mailer not being very sturdy. I was kind of disappointed that I spent so much money on something and the mailer wasn't a little more rigid so this didn't happen. I know it probably wasn't all the sellers fault so I can't blame it all on them but it still was kind of disappointing. I left my initial review and the seller contacted me and said she would send a new print to replace the bent one which I thought was very generous as I wasn't looking for a replacement or anything. I purchased this as a gift for a friend so the fact that I didn't have to give her the bent one was a nice prospect. Unfortunately I never received the replacement she said she would send so that just added to my disappointment.

About

The Growth of Dorothy Art

Growing up with my mother as a full-time artist, I have always been drawn to well...drawing! And painting. I loved connecting to many artforms and artists at a young age. I started selling my artwork after undergrad, but went on to recieve my Master's in Art Education. While I was teaching art, I knew that painting is what I wanted to solely do! I cranked up the volume in November of 2012 and haven't looked back! I start each piece by finding vintage book pages or sheet music, and in commission cases, wedding invitations, personal quotes, or love letters to use as the background on the canvas. I then create my oil paintings atop, depicting whimsical subjects. Each final work is unique and has depth and small details, thanks to the narrative backgrounds. I hope to create pieces that customers will give, receive, and cherish in their homes for a lifetime. I paint in hopes that my paintings bring joy to those that see something new every time they take a look.

What makes Dorothy Art unique...

My artwork is created through the inspiration brought on by the vintage books I find. Each piece is different and tells a story through not only the painting itself, but the actual story line of the book and the previous life these old books once had. In addition, my friends, loved ones, and customers inspire the pieces! People have come to me with love songs their grandparents sang to each other, silly phrases their dad says, wedding invitations, handwritten letters from neighbors who will miss their old friend who is moving, old maps of their city, their childhood story books...you name it!...to put in the background of their custom painting. It is then automatically and unbelievably personal! People love art because they make a connection to the subject. And I love it that I can make that connection for you! You can inspire me to create my next piece!

The best advice ever given to me...

To paint what you want hung on your own walls at home. If I love it, someone else in the world is bound to like it as well. About three years ago I wanted a painting of my silver pattern. I knew I could paint it, but I love collecting other's artwork. And I searched and searched and I couldn't find one. I thought, "I guess I'll just make it myself." I also had just started a mini collection (like 4 or 5 books! Now I have about 400!) of vintage books. So what did I do? Painted it on vintage recipes. It was a painting I wanted. Thankfully and to my surprise, others did too. So I've gone with that advice and haven't stopped painting subjects and in the style I adore!
