Self-taught artist and graphic designer.
Born and raised in a small Alaskan Norwegian fishing village called Petersburg. Doris's vibrant paintings and designs are inspired by her love of color, movement, pattern, and texture; continually found throughout the seashores and forests of her Southeast Alaskan home.
She has taught acrylic and watercolor classes to the local community for both kids and adults since 2010. As an artist, she believes that everyone has an innate ability for creativity, which has inspired her to share her talents in hopes of helping others cultivate expression of creativity in their own lives.
Her portfolio includes freelance graphic design work. Her journey of being a self-taught graphic artist started in 1996 when she started designing websites and magazine ads for her family's brokerage business. Today she designs anything from websites, logos, book covers, page layouts, icons, brochures, bookmarks, t-shirt designs- any kind of printed materials desired.
The main body of Doris' artwork is ocean/coastal inspired. Her online STORE ( OPENS MAY 15, 2020 ) offers original paintings, colorful prints, cards and vinyl stickers designs for purchase. Wholesale accounts for retailers (sticker and card designs) is available. CONTACT Doris for the PDF catalog, account info and line sheets.
Doris is open to artwork commissions, art shows, graphic design work and community projects. Feel free to CONTACT Doris for any inquiries.
