Doris Power began painting landscapes in acrylics but very soon changed to watercolour. She is mostly self-taught but has taken some workshops; in particular, she was privileged to learn from Jack Reid, an internationally-known watercolour artist.
She was a member of Visual Arts Brampton (VAB) for many years and was fortunate to have been accepted into four consecutive juried shows hosted by VAB during that time.
Doris laid aside her painting for approximately 25 years until becoming a member of Creative Brushes in Kingston in 2018 until March of 2020 when all things stopped due to Covid. With her recent move to Bath in 2021, her creative journey has continued. Her topics of interest include flowers, landscapes, birds and animals.
Doris is also a photographer and gardener and has worked part-time as a travel agent, designing and leading tours for small groups of women; in particular, garden and art tours.
