Brief Bio:

Dotti Stone is a resident artist at Bower Center for the Arts in Bedford VA where she maintains a studio (Smith Mountain Lake Mosaics), teaches adult and youth mosaics classes, and is one of five artists represented in Bower Center's Cornerstone Gallery. Dotti relocated to Southwestern Virginia in 2007 after many years as a professional photographer in the Wash DC area and as owner/designer at Great Falls Stained Glass creating commissioned glass work and teaching classes. Her formal art education was received at Richmond Professional Institute (now VCU).

In 2004 Stone took up mosaics. She relocated to Wirtz VA in 2007 has worked continuously as a mosaic artist and teacher of this centuries old art form. After maintaining a home studio for a couple of years she opened a studio in Bower Center for the Arts and in 2010 moved to Bedford to be close to Bower Center, the studio, and be part of a growing arts community.

The timeless beauty and versatility of ancient mosaics and the ease with which it integrates into modern society is what attracted Stone to this medium. Creating mosaics and inspiring others to enjoy, appreciate and learn about this versatile art through exhibiting and teaching is her passion.
