ARTIST Michael Dorsey

I am a retired art professor and dean. The important thing is that I have been a painter for over 50 years. I love it. During my career, my tools have ranged from egg tempera to polymer paint and pastel to mixed media. Foremost for me, is watercolor. It is the spirit of the creative act. It is for once-only.

I am committed to the narrative in art. My Beauty Salon Series lasted 30 years until I felt the story was told. I now work in shorter episodes. As I am nearing my end; my stories are more limited, usually to a single piece.
