Dora, born in Luzern, Switzerland was born to be an artist and a mother. A first class illustrator with a intuitive sense of color and composition, she put her artist life on hold to raise two children and it was not really until they were grown that she renewed her lifelong ambition to develop a collection. She always did say to me that once she started painting, she would continue for hours and feared she would not be a good parent so...her children came first and her pictures came later, much later.
Using oils, acrylics, pastels and watercolors, she turned to impressionism and fantasy especially since she must have read every science fiction book that was in print. This is what she focused on in her mature years. Her inspiration came from the beauty of nature, landscapes and occasionally people and her vision is definitely in technicolor.
