Doris is a lifelong artist, teacher, and designer loving all things art, fabric, and landscape. She has a BA in Art Educations and is a former Elementary Art teacher having taught all age levels.
In 1997, Doris began creating original fused fabric landscapes and mini quilts, which she matted and framed; hundreds of these originals have shown at fine art and craft shows in the midwest. After catching the attention of quilters, she was encouraged to share her expertise by giving workshops and lectures.
