Dorothy Oxborough SFCA, PPC - Biography

Alberta born Dorothy Oxborough studied at the Institute of Technology and Art in Canada and the Vancouver School of Art. She has enjoyed a 50 year successful career as an award-winning pastel artist.

In 1966, Oxborough was awarded the Premier Pastellist of Canada Award and the Gold Medal at the Annual Federation of Canadian Artists Signature Members Juried Exhibition.

Her pastels hang in the British Columbia and Nova Scotia Governments, the Maritime Museum, and the Calgary Bar Association. Her posters of native children continue to sell well. This is a pastel original in mint condition. A Rare Find.

Redkettle's framed original Oxborough has a gallery sticker on the back from The Isaacs Gallery on Bay Street in Toronto and a sticker that states: "This is an Original Pastel by the Canadian Artist OXBOROUGH OF BANFF. Oxborough (Mrs. Dorothy Johnson) Specializes in Indian Child and Animal Portraits".

To own an original Oxborough is to own an authentic piece of Canadian Culture. It remains a wonderful time piece.
