Doris Mee lives in Harwich, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod. Doris has won numerous awards in Regional, National, and International shows. Her work has been collected both nationally and internationally. She is a “Master Artist” member of the Cape Cod Art Center where she often exhibits. She recently (2018, 2019) has had work accepted and exhibited in juried shows at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, MA, the Creative Art Center in Chatham, the Cape Cod Cultural Center in Yarmouth, the Cahoon Museum of American Art in Cotuit, and the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable. Her work can be viewed at the Guild of Harwich Art Gallery in Harwich Port.
Doris has taught mixed media classes at several art centers on Cape Cod and in Florida. She has also taught many watercolor classes on the “High Seas” on cruise ships. She continues to teach the occasional workshop on Cape Cod.
Doris paints in both watercolor and acrylic. She often mixes watercolor, acrylic, and collage in the same painting. “I’ll use whatever it takes to make it work”, says Doris. When painting on location, she uses transparent watercolor, but in the studio and when doing non-representational work, she often uses acrylic. “I love intense color and strong value changes in my work, and I find this can be best achieved with either fluid or full-bodied acrylics.” She assembles her collage paintings from a wide variety of papers. She has a special fondness for oriental papers which she hand-paints with watercolors and acrylics.
“Art, as well as life, involves constant change and adaptation to one’s environment. I derive a sense of joy and creativity with each painting, which I hope to share with the viewers of my work.”
