Meet the Artist
Dorothy Salcedo (Dore')
Dorothy Salcedo, known to many as the former owner and lead designer of Dore' Designs, one of the nation's top custom ballroom gown company, is now devoting her artistic talents on canvas. She has had the opportunity to study under the direction of several prominent instructors.
Dorothy's replications of famous Renaissance paintings parallel their original masterpieces. She achieved much of her success during her time spent painting and learning in world-famous art museums, such as the Louvre in Paris, France and El Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain.
The Historical Society of the State of Wisconsin proudly displays Dorothy's portrait of her eminent ancestor, Chief Buffalo, as part of its permanent collection in the museum on Madeline Island.
Her extensive understanding and ability of the medium has enabled her to complete commissioned portraits. Dorothy's passion for painting Native American art, portraits, landscapes, animals and still-life is visible through her work exhibited on this site.
