Dedication To the Artist

The Spirits of the Land Foundation wishes to thank Dorothy Sullivan for designing and painting the Foundation's logo. The logo receives high praise from everyone who sees it. Dorothy Sullivan's roots reach deeply into Oklahoma soil. The award-winning artist is not only a native, she also is part Cherokee with ancestors who came from Georgia on the Trail of Tears. Her pride in that heritage is explicit in her paintings. Dorothy was able to translate a dream of Randy Ziesenis into the reality of the "Spirit of the Land" logo.
