Doris studied art at L.A.Trade Tech, Chouinard Art Institute, NAU and with Don Stone and Roy Purcell.
A native of California, she and her family moved to Kingman in 1965. She is a charter member of the Mohave Artists and Craftsmen's Guild, has served on the Kingman Arts and Humanities Commission and as an instructor at Kingman Jr. High and in the Comminuty Schools program.
Doris was the director of the Mohave Museum of History and Art from 1973-1976, where she had the responsibility for development of new exhibits as well as operation of the museum. Since 1979 she has owned and operated her own gallery.
In 1988 she was the proud recipient of the Women Making History Art Award. Doris has won many ribbons and prizes for her work at art shows, county fairs and the Arizona State Fair.
Her great grand-daughter, reading and travel are her favorite hobbies. Inspiration for many of her paintings comes from her travel memories and photographs. Doris works exclusively in acrylics, but her painting subjects run the full range from portraits to landscapes and everything in between.
