Born and growing up on the Wirral, Dotty was attracted to drawing and painting from a young age, partly inspired by her father who decorated the ceilings of old cinemas and dance halls. This led to her studying art at Wirral Metropolitan College before pursuing a degree in Film and Animation at the University of Humberside.
Following this, Dotty spent many years employed as a digital artist, mainly within the computer entertainment industry on well known games such as the Broken Sword series and a number of Disney titles, before moving into a freelance role and continuing to work in the field of computer games as well as creating book illustrations and art for clothing lines.
Dotty began creating artwork inspired by her interest in dark fairy tales, alternative music and 50s fashion. She recently moved to a small Yorkshire village and receiving commissions for more traditional artwork, has rediscovered her love of painting
The Braithwaite Gallery is thrilled to be exhibiting Dotty's Tall Stories range - we're sure you're going to enjoy her Twirly World of bright and colourful characters.
