DORIS ANDERSON’S “joy de vive” is evident in each new art work. She works quickly and intuitively, choosing harmonious colours and contrasting tones. She makes various marks on the canvas including drawing back into the paint to reveal the undercoat. Each painting contains progressive layers which may impact the viewer with a sense of the splendour of musical rhythms or of a natural energetic vitality. This combination of accomplished artistic technique and mastery of dynamic content is the essence of Doris Anderson’s authentic art language. Her confident paintings are truly an emissary for dynamic visual journeys.

Her education includes private tutorial with Laara WilliamSen, International professional painter from 2012 to present, Concordia University, part time studies from 1969 to 1972 and full time Dedicated Art Classes at Dunton High School in Montreal from 1966 to 1969.  She has also spent time developing her knowledge of contemporary and modern art by visiting several Museums in the past years.
