Dorothy Bee Williams​

“The Queen Bee” is a retired and disabled US Army veteran living in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. A survivor of child abuse, rape, domestic violence, drugs and alcohol abuse, military sexual trauma, brain surgery and racism, she is the epitome of resilience and fortitude. With a 2019 Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Jackson State University and a 2005 Associate of Applied Science in Graphic Design from Yavapai College in Prescott, Arizona, Dorothy has won many fine arts competitions and received numerous awards. She has also had her work on exhibitions at Mississippi Museum of Art.

Dorothy won the Editor’s Choice Award from the International Poetry Society for her poem “I Was There”. Winning 1st Place nationwide for her paper collage in the National Veteran Creative Arts Festival, entitled “The Eyes Have It” in 2002, Dorothy is a master artist. Her favorite medium is clay sculpting in which she says she can feel a glimpse of what God must have felt when he molded man from clay. Dorothy is a Woman of God and gives God the Glory for everything she is today, everything she has been and everything she is going to be in the future. She has no children but has hope that her God baby Princess Imoni Danielle and others will one day be able to reap the fruit of her legacy.
