Raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Roberta attended Vanderbilt University, graduating in 1968 with a degree in Art History. She returned to Atlanta where she worked in the financial industry, but spent her spare time studying art at the Atlanta Art Institute and Georgia State University.
Moving to San Diego in 1971, she continued her part-time study of art, taking advantage of the wonderful opportunities offered by the public school’s continuing education program. She married Eddie Dyer in 1973 and they have lived in Point Loma since 1976.
Art remained one of Roberta’s main interests while she raised her children and volunteered with their schools and the San Diego Museum of Art. She was chairman of the committee at the Museum that installed the very first hands-on exhibit for children, the “Cowboy”, and the first “Art Cart” for the instruction of children in the galleries of the Museum.
Almost a decade ago, Roberta’s art career took a more serious turn when she began working with a local interior designer, painting murals in residential spaces. That endeavor has evolved into commissioned art as well as murals and painted furniture
Traditionally working in oils and acrylics, she has recently turned to the very challenging medium of watercolor. Roberta joined the San Diego Watercolor Society a year ago, and in that time has been awarded a Juror’s Commendation as well as a “Best of Miniatures” in their monthly shows. She is serving as President of the SD Water Color Society in 2010.
Roberta loves the challenge of creating art, and believes that art should improve one’s space and create a moment of pleasure.
Roberta’s art may currently be viewed at the San Diego Watercolor Society, Belle Maison Seacoast Interiors in Ocean Beach, Tender Greens Restaurant and Pacific View Real Estate.
