Pahrump, NV – Dorothy Slikker is an experienced fine artist creating original oil paintings for collectors and art enthusiasts across Nevada. She is the founder of Slikker’s Fine Art Studio and the author of My Art Walk To the Contemporary Masters
“I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life, ever since I was a 13,” recalls Slikker. “I painted a tree in water colors and it took first place in the cafeteria contest. I got such a thrill inside the body and that has never left me. My mother had married a man who told me, ‘No, you can’t take art!’ It was forbidden, which only made me want to do it more.”
Blending acrylics and oils in the style of her mentor Robert Warren, Slikker skillfully captures natural beauty. Her works range from realistic to realistic-impressionistic, portraits, landscapes and animals.
“It’s a very personal journey into your work,” says Slikker, “I like to paint scenery with life in it.”
“Her perfection is formidable,” says curator Despina Tunberg. “For us, Dorothy truly is a master painter.”
Slikker recently completed a four-month exhibit at the Metropolitan Gallery Las Vegas Art Museum.
“I had the drive to become known as a fine artist. I wanted my work to tell a story.” says Slikker. “I’m proud that I reached for the desires I’ve always held. This has been my journey in art and my acceptance into the art community.”
