Marks and designs on paper, born of my thoughts, feelings, and experiences, engage me on a valuable interior journey. Studying abstraction is important to me and enhances my appreciation of the work of other artists. Currently, I find the concepts of tonality, color, shape, and interval increasingly fascinating.
Born in 1932, Doris spent many hours absorbed in drawing, painting, printing, jewelry making, and trying to make sense of the world around her. After college, she studied and worked in medicine. She joined a Sumi-e society and exhibited at The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, took classes at The Art Students League, and showed her work in student exhibits. Upon retirement in 1992, she became a student at The Woodstock School of Art and joined The Woodstock Art Association and Museum where she remains an active member. She exhibits regularly in these and other local venues.
