Doreen has always drawn and painted. Colour and texture are her main passions and she is attracted to scenery and objects which lend themselves to being painted in bright colours.
Doreen is inspired by beautiful places she visits and often create a piece working from memory and feelings.
She has also been inspired to paint from reading novels such as the opening passage of the ‘shadow of the land’ evoking strong and vivid images in her hand which she feels compelled to paint!
Doreen’s work is varied. She paints in oils, watercolour and mixed media. She enjoys experimenting with different styles and materials reflecting the world around her, the changing seasons, places of interest and emotions.
