"Dorothea wrote poetry and drew pictures from the time she could walk. Forced to leave college due to The Depression at age nineteen, she financed a move to New York by drawing a lightning bolt figure for family friend Ashton Collins of the Alabama Power Company. This little cartoon character became Reddy Kilowatt, and launched her career in illustration and commercial art. Soon after arriving in the big city of New York, she started sitting in barber shops and sketching children getting hair cuts. She took a job at Best & Co decorating their shop windows. Slowly she started getting spots for McCalls, Parents Magazine and Good Housekeeping. In the spring of 1935, Dorothea began working for a small advertising studio, Ehrlich and Kenne. They would find commissions for her and take a cut of the proceeds, but she could also continue to accept jobs she found on her own. There she met Charles Fox. He was a handsome and dashing illustrator and commercial artist who often took long liquid lunches, then worked all night in the empty studio to meet his deadlines. He had just returned from a year long sabbatical on St. Lucia in the West Indies and was trying to apply himself again to the mundane task of making money. " (American Artists website)
