|Dottie Clagett Choate is an award winning artist who works in watercolor, acrylics and mixed media. Her style is versatile, ranging from realism to non-objective abstract, with emphasis on line and color. “My paintings have been influenced by my Illinois roots and my early memories of stark black lines of leafless trees against a wintry sky, white fluffy clouds in blue skies, the vivid colors of summer flowers, and the brilliant colors of fall.”Over the years, Dottie has studied with many locally as well as nationally known artists. She is a member of the Crystal Beach Art Group, International Society of Acrylic Painters of Florida, Dunedin Fine Art Center, The Museum of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, The Art Center in St Petersburg, the Florida Watercolor Society as well as Studio 1212 Art Gallery of Clearwater, FL.Dottie works out of her studio in her home, and displays her art work at Studio 1212 and at other venues in the area in both group exhibitions and one-person shows.
