399 Hedge Road, Jackson’s Point, Pefferlaw
Born and raised in Peterborough Ontario, I dreamt of being an artist always drawing, painting and sculpting. At the age of 19, I moved to Toronto to obtain my Bachelor of Architecture from Ryerson University (Toronto Metropolitan University). The alternate art form from which I could make a living. I have spent over 25 years running DPK Design serving the fast paced custom residential construction industry in Toronto and around Ontario.
In 2006 Doris with her family moved from Toronto to Georgina-the south shore of Lake Simcoe to offer a country life for her son to grow up in. Inspired by my surrounding landscapes and the architecture of the world she began painting again and even took part in a group show at the Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery in 2016.
In the last few years I was forced to experience great personal change, one of which in 2021 was a catastrophic fire in her home and studio – I have used painting as a tool to heal and try to move forward.
