Dorothy Heller (1917 – 2003) was an American painter.
Born in New York City, Heller was an Abstract Expressionist who studied at the Art Students League of New York and was a pupil of Hans Hoffman. She worked in acrylic, and exhibited widely during her career in solo and charity shows throughout the United States. Three of her drawings, two nudes and a figure study, are owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and her fake may afterward be found in the collections of the Wadsworth Athenaeum, the Allen Memorial Art Museum, and the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art. A heap of her papers and further miscellany is held by the Archives of American Art of the Smithsonian Institution.
