Doreen's bio:
I spent many years as a professional children’s book illustrator, but eventually I wanted my work to exist off the page, on its own & have no editor but me. I tell stories or convey a feeling with my work; whether in a tile, where there is often a narrative, or in a sculpture or ornament. My pieces are in collections all over the world and in galleries in the United States. I was honored to win a Niche award in 2011 and to be a double finalist this year, the award recognizes excellence in craftsmanship. I'm thrilled to share my excitement & enthusiasm for these creations in workshops across the country and Europe.
