"My love of Charleston, my ancestral home -especially being near saltwater- is my creative inspiration."

Dorothy Allston Rogers is a sixth-generation Charleston native whose family has Iived in the South Carolina Lowcountry for more than 350 years. She grew up the youngest of 10 children on a historical plantation, overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway just south of Charleston. Her formative years were in an environment of crabbing, fishing, farming, clam-digging, gathering oysters, casting for shrimp, and generally being outside. Dorothy still enjoys these activities, and frequently sets up her easel alongside her fishing rod. She has been married for 33 years, has three children, and lives in Charleston.

Dorothy's interest in art began at an early age, and she has earned many awards during her scholastic career. Her art training began at the College of Charleston, with a focus on drawing, as well as, oil painting. She completed her college studies in 1984 with a degree in Studio Art from the University of South Carolina, and was granted a year-long internship as an apprentice in a successful art studio. This experience revealed the importance of using high grade materials and museum-quality preservation methods to insure the artwork will last for generations. Through her 40 years of being in the art world, Dorothy has participated in many art workshops as a student, as well as an instructor in numerous drawing, acrylics, and watercolor classes. Dorothy's artwork carries a sense of peace, calm and reflection that flows from a heart rooted in the Holy City and steeped in salt-water and pluff-mud.

Locals and visitors alike appreciate the feelings she displays through wonderful colors, composition and style. No matter which medium she chooses, Dorothy's paintings capture the love and inspiration she feels for her ancestral home- the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
