Dot Bunn

April 24, 2024

Each oil painting Dot Bunn creates is the result of a long process of planning and study that is not only the preparation of that subject and design. It includes the years of developing her technical tools developed in a practice of oil painting. She believes spontaneity and intuition are best paired with a strong background in drawing and value management. She has studied the skills and lessons of the masters in order to be ability to express that intangible sense of life that comes through in her work.

It’s paid off. Dot is a Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America and is regularly juried into their shows. She’s exhibited in the Allied Artists of American Annual Juried Show at the National Arts Club and the American Artists Professional League Grand National Exhibition, as well as at Phillips’ Mill where she regularly wins awards. Her work is in the corporate collections of Byers Choice, Bohler Engineering and the Korean Delegation of Nam Dong.

Dot credits her mentors Myron Barnstone and Patrick Connors with giving her not just technical tools for her art but also in changing the way she thinks about art generally.
