Doris is an acrylic artist and photographer. As retirement came close and major health issues occurred, Doris decided it was time to figure out what to do when she grew up. Doris began her artistic journey with a class at the local community college. After this class she knew. Doris jumped full force into the paint. Illness has a way of bringing you to a point where you want more in your life and then when illness hits again painting becomes your salvation and therapy. Doris is a member of both international, national, and regional art organizations. Doris' paintings hang in collections, homes, and businesses in many states, the UK, and Germany. Doris has a real HeArt for putting emotions and memories on canvas. One of the greatest compliments comes when a client says “that painting speaks to me.” Doris continues to take classes from instructors across the US always trying new ideas and expanding the freedom of artistic expression. Doris resides in the mountains of Western NC in the Asheville region.
