Artist Statement 

Dory St. John teaches oil and acrylic painting to adult members of the Prospect Senior Center and Middlebury Senior Center.  Before her retirement Dory worked as a Program Manager at Waterbury Arc.  While there she introduced painting to individuals with intellectual disabilities. Their works were printed into calendars which were sold as a fundraiser for the agency.  She also arranged for their works to be exhibited in an art show at the Legislative Office Building at the State Capitol in Hartford as well as the Silas Bronson Library in Waterbury.  In the past Dory also taught painting both privately and to children and adults at Girls Inc. in Waterbury.


Dory studied art at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, MA and University of Hartford Art School.  She has exhibited her work at various art associations in Connecticut as well as the Silas Bronson Library and St. Mary’s Hospital.


Dory paints primarily in oil.  Her works reflect the impressionistic style of painting. Many of her works are landscapes, florals, and still life.
