Dorit Winter

San Rafael, CA

Watercolor has always been my preferred medium. My trajectory has been somewhat conventional, starting with faithful copying of nature, then being inspired to render nature as I imagine it, then working with nature as abstraction. In recent years I’ve started working with watercolor pigment on stretched canvas and am still discovering its vivid dimensionality and dynamic.

Dorit brings a cosmopolitan background to all her undertakings. She was born in Jerusalem, attended kindergarten in Zürich, primary school in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and junior and senior high schools in New York City.

She has an MA in comparative literature from SUNY/Binghamton. She attended the Corcoran School of Art, and also studied with a number of painting teachers including Ted Mahle, Jennifer Thomson and Donald Hall.

Dorit has taught a variety of subjects in the arts and humanities, including painting and art history, at the middle school, high school and adult levels. Now “retired,” Dorit teaches painting privately. Her paintings have been exhibited in a number of privately sponsored exhibits as well as at MarinMOCA, where she was recently included in a national, juried exhibit.

Also a writer, Dorit has developed a method of creative writing that leans on her experience as a painter. 'Pictorial Writing' is a method she has shared with students of all ages over the past four decades. 'Fire the Imagination, Write On!' a practical primer on the pictorial writing method, was published in May, 2017.
