Doris fell in love with painting while she was living in Texas. Her neighbour invited her to come along to a painting class as a gesture of friendship and that changed her whole life. Painting has become a passion. Doris took a variety of courses in the U.S. and Canada.
In 2003, Doris was invited to Rivière-du-Loup as an artist for ‘La Marée aux 1000 Vagues’. She also received a Community Artist grant and had the opportunity to travel across Alberta as a guest artist. Doris was published in a desk calendar for the Association de la Femme in Quebec. Her work was chosen for a poster for the Association canadienne de l’éducation langagière francophone in 2004. Since that time, Doris has been featured in the magazines Art Avenue(Vancouver), Somerset Studio(U.S., Spring 2007) and Leisure Painter(U.K., Fall 2007). Doris was the featured artist for Capital Ex in Edmonton in 2009. In 2011, she also received the Sylvie Van Brabant award from the Regroupement artistique francophone de l’Alberta.
Doris prefers to work in mixed media to create a more contemporary effect. She is interested in textures, shapes and light. Her love of texture won her the Allesandra Bisselli Award with the Federation of Canadian Artists in Vancouver. Nature and the world around her are her inspiration. Doris travels a lot to teach her technique to youths and adults who share her love for creation.
