(Born 1947) Perhaps her great grandmother who was Iroquois inspired Dobson to paint the people and their pottery and moccasins. From time to time the artist's love and study of antique glass beads has enabled her to restore beadwork on deer-hide moccasins.
Clearly Dobson is dedicated to depicting all subjects with extreme accuracy and attention to detail. Originally from Sacramento, California, she was known to have drawn and painted since childhood, studying art in college. Following a career as a cardiology technician, in 1975 she chose to paint full time.
Museum shows including her paintings have taken place in the following museums: the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma; the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC; the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition in Oklahoma City; the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, Texas and the Desert Caballeros Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona.
Dobson has been represented by Trailside Galleries (Scottsdale & Jackson, Wyoming) for many years.
