An accomplished colorist impressionist, Dorallen has captured images of the San Francisco Bay Area and Marin, of people and places from life. Her interpretations are presented here, in the Founders' Lounge—coming full circle back to the location of her first Marin studio with the first group to occupy Art Works Downtown—indeed a proud moment.
