Do you resonate with these thoughts?
Deep down, you know you are capable of more, but what is holding you back?
What steps can you take to breakthrough your roadblocks and move forward?

If so, as a Creative Mentor, I help with aspects of your artistic life including your thoughts and emotions. I help you dive deeper and ask yourself questions to determine what you can do to manifest your creative potential, to get unstuck, to rebound from self-doubt and external criticism, and understand yourself to live a balanced and inspired life.

A safe space is held for you to express your concerns and dreams, such as:

  • How to uncover your purpose and clarity.
  • Assessment and determine strengths, interests, desires.
  • Investigate blockages, fears, self-doubt, anxiety, imposter syndrome.
  • How to overcome obstacles and challenges, overwhelm and burn-out.
  • Adding play and laughter to your days.
  • Build confidence.
  • How to gain better problem-solving skills and make better decisions.
  • How to think more creatively for idea-generating in your work.
  • Marketing, branding, goal setting, strategy.
  • Develop an action plan and follow-through.
  • Commissions and partnerships.
  • Motivation and support.
  • Accountability

Meet Dorrie Rifkin

Drawing | Watercolor

I changed careers from an advertising art director to watercolor artist in 2010. It took hard work, luck and talent.

It took hard work, luck and talent. This would never have happen if I didn’t take a workshop in 2010I and a master watercolor artist saw something in me, that I didn’t see in myself. He gave me the confidence in my ability, direction and tools to help me. I have been lucky that I have had many mentors that generously have helped me. Now it’s my turn to pay it forward.

An Englewood, NJ, resident, Dorrie paints from her passions. Thirty years’ experience as an award-winning art director ignited and cemented a life-long love affair with typography. Her other passions — music, New York City, and family – are palpable in her work. Every painting has a personal story. Her paintings have been accepted in over 100 international and national juried shows, and are exhibited in private collections, worldwide. She also have won awards in many of the these shows.

She is part of the Paintings on Loan Program and has paintings in Kathmandu and Muscat Omen Dorrie was featured in the article “Ones to Watch,” Watercolor Artist (December 2010), and her work was selected for Splash 14, 15, 17,18, 19 and 20. Her painting, “Leaving the Highline” was selected for the cover of Watercolor Artist magazine (February 2015). She is a signature member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and the Northeast, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Garden State Watercolor Society, New Jersey, In 2023 she became a Master Signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society. Dorrie teaches local classes in New Jersey, workshop through the US and online classes.
