ABOUT THE ARTIST: Dottie Turner Leatherwoods love of the arts was inspired by her childhood growing up along the Georgia coast. After earning a B.A. in Journalism and Art from the University of Georgia and enjoying a multi-city career in public relations and advertising, Leatherwood moved back home to Savannah, Ga., and to the landscapes that fueled her imagination as a child. Now living on Tybee Island, Ga., Leatherwood typically paints on location to immerse herself in the energy of the landscape. She is a signature member of The American Impressionist Society and a member of the Oil Painters of America and the American Society of Marine Artists.
