Dorian Allworthy Artist Bio:
I was born in Philadelphia, and studied under Arthur DeCosta at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. I moved to Chicago to further my studies with my adopted father, the noted painter Joseph Allworthy. I specialize in large figure paintings as well as still life compositions and landscapes. I'm also noted for my genre paintings which depict domestic activities and children. I paint on unstretched canvas, then have the canvas mounted on thick bookbinder's board by a master bookbinder. He folds the edges of the canvas over the board, then covers the back with archival paper. The result is museum-quality and exquisite, each one distinctive and a work of art in and of itself. It is an expensive and labor-intensive process, but I feel that it creates something beautiful on the reverse side of the painting, making both sides special.
