Meet Dolly Oliver
Website designer & Web Goddess Gallery owner
How Web Goddess Gallery got started—
I’ve always been interested in the visual arts, and I’d spent years gaining experience in computer technology as part of my job. So, after retiring from the Nevada County public school system, I enrolled in a series of website and design college classes to hone my skills. Following this period of training, I was ready to jump into web designing with both feet.

A Snapshot of where I hang out …
The little town of North San Juan, CA is perched along the original 49’er gold mining trail, in the northern foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains— one of those “don’t blink or you’ll miss it” towns! The San Juan Ridge is a rural and heavily forested area, dramatically bordered by the beautiful middle and south forks of the Wild and Scenic Yuba River. In the 1970s a good many of the hip folks from the San Francisco Bay area relocated here and set to cultivating the land and rearing their children. “The Ridge” hasn’t changed much, and it still maintains its unique character and culture.
Heading south from North San Juan on Highway 49, it’s literally “over the river and through the woods” to the historic cities of Nevada City and Grass Valley. All three of our historic gold rush towns strongly support community, along with a strong focus on the Arts.
