Award-winning New Jersey artist Dorrie Rifkin demonstrates her unique approach to painting NYC urban landscapes.
An Englewood, NJ, resident, Dorrie Rifkin paints from her passions. Thirty years’ experience as an award-winning art director ignited and cemented a life-long love affair with typography. Her other passions — music, New York City, and family – are palpable in her work.
Every painting tells a personal story.
“I’m lucky to live close to New York City; I spend a lot of time there,” Rifkin says. “When I go to the city I usually bring a camera or sketchbook. Running out of things to paint would mean that I am not doing much of anything with my life.”
Dorrie teaches watercolors in New Jersey and is increasingly in demand nationally to conduct her watercolor workshop series.
Her paintings have won prizes in many international and national juried shows. She is a signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Philadephia Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America and the Northeast Watercolor Society.
