Dorothy Anderson was born December 21, 1941 in
Georgetown, Texas. Dorothy moved to Arkansas
some 30 years ago when her husband Bobby retired
from the Army after 20 years of service. They had
traveled the United States and Europe and decided
Ozarks was where they wanted to settle.
Dorothy has always been interested in art. After her
children were grown, Dorothy started taking lessons
from Jo Rowell and a couple of years ago she went to
North Arkansas College in Harrison, Arkansas where
she took art classes and creative writing.
Dorothy likes all mediums of art: oils, pastels, pen and ink, and pencils. Some more so than others but
still her favorite is pencil and colored pencils. She is always learning new art forms whether on canvas,
paper, cloth, or wood.
Along with her art, Dorothy likes writing. She completed a course of study with the Long Ridge Writer's
Group. She hopes to write and illustrate her own books for children someday.
Dorothy is Secretary of the Marion County Extension Club,
Vice President of Brown Church EHC,
member of the Marion County Christian Women Club,
Secretary of the Palette Art League, and
President elect of the Crooked Creek Quilter's Guild.
Dorothy enjoys woodcarving on Saturday mornings with fellow woodcarving enthusiasts at the Marion
County Senior Center, and quilting with the Monday Morning Cut Ups quilting group at the Marion
County Senior Center.
