Dora was born in Italy in the town of Taranto. She always had a passion for painting from her early teens. Prevented by circumstances, from following an art education, she pursued a career in business for many years, initially in Italy and continued after moving to England in 1988.
Her artistic career developed in the Cayman Islands when she moved there with her family in 2000. Primarily a self-taught artist she has attended numerous workshops by several international artists as well as learning the realistic technique of the Masters at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto.
Dora was an active member of the Visual Art Society of the Cayman Islands and chaired the board until April 2010.
In July 2011 Dora and her family moved back to the UK and now lives in Great Malvern, where she continues her fine art practice.
"Abstraction is the foundation process in making my work. The unknown factor makes the journey unpredictable, as I search for human forms within the abstract.
For me the human body conveys a feeling, an emotion, engaging the viewer with their own personal response."
