About the Author

Dorothy Nissen
dorothynisse Berkeley, California
I grew up in a suburban house on an antediluvian riverbed near the orange groves at the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountains in Southern California. Lulled to sleep by crickets on summer nights, I woke early to nearly touch the blue mountains filling my window. One day backpacking I knew that I had to draw the mountains showing the evolutionary striation of the rocks. Later I felt some sense of wholeness drawing the moving figure of a friend dancing around the pool. After MA in Claremont went to NYC with award from Brooklyn Museum School. Mid-60s delirium and working in inner city schools in East Harlem and East New York, Brooklyn. Marriage to a life of love and nightmare… Returned together to CA 1971, lived in the Castro for 20 years, moved to Berkeley in 1994 living happily ever after.
