Doris Mee lives in Harwich, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod. She paints and teaches there as well as in Florida. Doris has won numerous awards in Regional, National, and International shows. Her work has been collected nationally and internationally. She is a “Master Artist” member of the Cape Cod Art Association where she often exhibits, as well as exhibiting in several other art centers and galleries 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.”
