Instructor Bio: Dotti Stone
Dotti studied art at Richmond Professional Institute (now VCU), Richmond VA. She was a professional photographer for many years in the Washington DC area. In the late 70s/early 80s, as owner/designer of Great Falls Stained Glass in Northern VA, she created residential/commercial commissioned work and taught classes.
Stone took up mosaics in 2004 while in Northern VA, relocated to Wirtz VA in 2007, opened a studio in Bower Center for the Arts in 2009, and the following year moved to Bedford to be part of its growing arts community.
In 2015 she and several other mosaic artists formed BRMA, Blue Ridge Mosaic Artists. The group meets bimonthly, plans mosaic exhibits, and works on community mosaic projects.
Stone creates fine art panels and sculptural works, and teaches mosaic classes to adults, and to youth in Bower’s summer arts camp and after school programs. She exhibits widely in the area, in national exhibits, and in 2013 teamed up with mosaic artist Stephen Brailo to present exhibits that combined his traditional classical style and her contemporary approach.
“Most rewarding is seeing what my students create, their excitement over the different materials and colors, learning various techniques and their applications, and developing an appreciation of mosaics. Mosaic art is one of the oldest art forms and creating and exhibiting them to inspire others to enjoy, appreciate, and learn about this versatile and tactile form of art is important and satisfying.”
