In this episode, Dorothy Shain shares about her life in Greenville, SC, how she discovered she could have a career in art and how she views her style and voice.

Dorothy Shain, a Greenville, South Carolina based artist, has a dynamic portfolio. She graduated from Southern Methodist University in 2012 with a B.A. in studio art. From her collages and patterns to her landscapes, Dorothy’s exploration of mediums is reflective of the colors, textures, and patterns drawn from her adventures around the globe. Heavily influenced by her travels, which commenced during a college Semester at Sea, Dorothy has taken her experiences back to her studio allowing the art to reveal the inspirations and influence of the cultures, people and places seen. She is constantly fueled, as an individual and an artist, by traveling to new places, meeting new people, and being outdoors. These three things constantly remind her of her place in the world and her connection to it.
