Art has been a lifelong passion and love, however
intentions to become an artist in earlier years got derailed by life events. I
started in fashion and design, but ended up with a Political Science degree.
After raising a family and working as a single parent for many years, I returned
to my first love, art, and attended a local community college for art courses. I
have also attended numerous workshops with nationally known artists, including
Janet Rogers, Ted Nuttall, Nicholas Simmons, Robert Burridge, Carla O'Conner, and Myrna Wacknov. I have also taken workshops periodically from regionally and nationally known artists, Jennifer Bowman, Jacqui Beck, Chris Romine, and Dianna Shyne. Whenever I can, I
attend demonstrations by other artists in various parts of the country.
I relocated to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to family. I now teach art in
several Senior Centers in Skagit and Whatcom Counties. As well, I teach
occasional workshops throughout the Pacific Northwest. I belong to Art League
North,Skagit Artists Together, and Stanwood Camano Art Guild, and periodically win awards, and show and sell my
work at regional art shows. In November, 2013, I was selected as one of the Emerging Artists in the La Conner Arts Alive Show. You may see more of my work and ramblings about art at my blog, DeeDoyleArtandSoul.
