Dorothy Dzigurski was born in Grand Junction, Colorado. She trained in art through various courses while living and studying in Honolulu, Hawaii at the University of Hawaii before entering St. Mary's College of Nursing, San Francisco, California, and graduated in 1959. In 1962, she enrolled at Washington University in St Louis, Missouri and continued to take electives in art while working on a nursing degree.
Pursuing her nursing career, she always had a great love for art and for nature. She moved to Boulder, Colorado where she again enrolled in art classes at the University of Colorado where she graduated in 1966, with a Bachelor of Science degree.
"In the mid 1960's while working as a nurse, she encountered a patient with a broken painting arm, Alexander Dzigurski. Dorothy was instrumental in Alexander's recovery and a great friendship, romance and marriage followed. In 1968 she married Alexander Dzigurski, famous for his unique and colorful seascapes, one of his larger canvases, called 'From Sea to Shining Sea,' hangs in the Franklin Mint Museum. It was painted in 1976 in honor of the nation's Bicentennial, when the Franklin Mint Gallery of American Art commissioned him 'as America's finest painter of the sea." Together they had traveled extensively throughout the contiguous United States and beyond to Europe, Canada, and Hawaii. In short order, the happy couple had a son, born with oil paints flowing through his veins.
In 1973, for three and one half months, Dorothy, alongside her husband and son, sketched and painted in the Swiss Alps, France, Italy, Yugoslavia and Spain.
Today, Alex Dzigurski II is a fine artist in his own right, in part a testament to Dorothy's love of art and her devotion to her artist husband and to her artist son. Today, grandmother and matriarch, one of her great joys is brushing away at her easel.
Dzigurski with 40 years of professional nursing experience and has been a certified neurological linguistics coach for nine years. In this role, she uses her skills as a nurse and painter to coach those who have difficulty with the processes of speaking, listening, reading, writing and using sign language.
