In a field of mixed media art, Doering creates Visual Poetry using line, shape, and color. Whether starting with photographs, prints, paintings, or computer intervention, she explores unconventional surfaces and printing techniques to convey her vision. This approach is expressive and intuitive, permitting discovery to dictate where the process leads. Separate components of an image are condensed and edited before they are combined in Adobe Photoshop. Using Dass Transfer Film, Doering is free from the restrictions of traditional inkjet print. Work is applied directly to birch panels, handmade paper or Arches 88 paper. Each substrate adds its unique textural effect to every image. The combination of technology and artistry allows Doering flexibility to infuse complex abstract imagery with vibrant color.
