Photographs from a recent trip to Morocco inspired me with their rich colors and varied textures. Using them in collage, it has given a new depth and vibrancy to my work, carrying it forward into a new dimension. And some, like my last submission, must stand alone without alteration.

Dorothea stated, “I have been an art collector for 30 years, which is a form of creative expression. My choices and how I display them all stem from my 'eye' — my vision and aesthetic. Since living in Woodstock, I have studied painting and collage. I have begun to exhibit and sell my own work, while continuing to collect. For me, it’s all about energy, color and shape. I was very inspired by my recent time in Morocco, and it’s showing up in my work
