Alice Ann Dobbin has been drawing and painting since she was old enough to hold a pencil. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she was selected in elementary school to attend special classes for the artistically gifted at Carnegie Mellon University.?She obtained her art degree from Washington and Jefferson College where she graduated magna cum laude and was honored with the prestigious Beta Scholar designation by the president of the college. Former head of the Art History Department, professor Hugh Taylor described her style at that time, as reminiscent of Mary Cassatt. Dobbin was an adjunct professor of art at Washington and Jefferson College for several years. For the past 30 years she has been a professional artist and has authored two books.?Her soft and lyrical paintings transcend conventional realism as they evoke a feeling of tranquility that is almost spiritual. Says the artist: "The aim of my work is to share my passion for nature in images of tranquil wildlife and landscapes. Painting is my personal quest for peace and I use color and composition to strive for an almost ethereal vision."
