Growing up in New York, Sanders was surrounded by many art forms and lucky enough to have an art teacher in her school. As she chose “what I want to do with my life”, she knew it would be teaching in the arts. As a college graduate with degrees in art education Sanders taught in the New York State schools until moving to Nome. While in Alaska Dottie found a wealth of opportunities to paint and travel. She also learned to teach writing, jewelry and silver fabrication, drama, literature and to synthesize art into classroom and life experiences. Dottie and her husband Kent, a jewelry artist, built a home on Whidbey in 2007.
