As a contemporary California Impressionist, Dorothy Cavanagh enjoys painting     near the coast in in Southern California where she she was born and raised.  Her interest in art began early from her portrait artist grandmother, for whom she remembers posing as a child.      She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA.  After years of classical art studies and workshops with master artist Jove Wang, she has focused on her own style of colors true to nature, with bold brush strokes and lust for light.

     Painting excursions take her to places where nature really pulls her in:  The lavender and sunflower fields of Provence, the vineyards of central California, and the dwindling fields of strawberries and eucalyptus groves near her home in Orange County.
