Dorothy (Sanders) Slikkers is an experienced fine artist creating beautiful, original oil paintings for collectors and art enthusiasts across Nevada. Working mainly with landscapes and animals, Dorothy skillfully captures the natural innocence and sincerity of each creature and the breathtaking beauty of a scenic landscape using oil paints and watercolors. These spectacular landscapes, animal paintings and other portraits for sale are made to pull the viewer into the painting and transport them to a serene and colorful world.
As a past president of the Pahrump Visual & Performing Arts Council, Dorothy is passionate about teaching new painters about the beauty and history of art and passing on her skills to up-and-coming artists. She also continues to expand on her own technique and learn from other skilled painters.
Dorothy has previously attended workshops with painters Gary and Kathrin Jenkins and studied under the direction of Robert Warren. She feels that no other artist can compare to the glow and mastery that Robert displays with his work, and she hopes to bring this technique and passion to her own work. While working with Robert she has learned a particular method to combine acrylic colors with dark oil undertones, adding more depth and intrigue to each painting. This also gives each painting a fascinating glow and creates an alluring, hypnotic effect. She hopes to share this technique and many others with art enthusiasts and with her students.
