Dorothy Mason

Dorothy Mason is a Chicago artist focused on connecting people with nature and creating works which entice the viewer to explore and appreciate their relationship with their surroundings. She incorporates Eastern philosophy and the icons of transcendence represented by the lotus and water lilly.

She emphasizes not only the product of her artwork but also the process which begins with strolling through woods and parks, observing her natural surroundings. She then sketches using pencil followed by graphite sticks. Using turpentine, she liquifies the graphite and applies it with a brush. She uses this as the basis for then adding watercolors and oils.

Mason has had numerous solo and group exhibitions as well as a museum exhibition in 2007 at the Springfield Art Museum in Springfield, MO. She has also been featured in publications and media and received the Merit Award from Anatomically Correct, Evanston Art Walk.
