Doreen Hardie's landscapes and people scenes, done in an impressionistic style, reflect her deep faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the beauty He created in the world around her. Doreen works primarily in oils. She maintains “The Word Gallery studio” in Palm Coast, Florida.
A student of the late Greek painter Antonis Karafyllakis, Doreen's impressionistic style is strongly influenced by his teaching. While inspired by the Caribbean landscape, Doreen's works also draw upon the diversity of the places she sees. Her paintings speak peace to the viewer.
Doreen has shown her works in several galleries and juried art shows including the Washington, DC area, Wilmington, Delaware, Soho, New York and Florida. She participated in the National Black Fine Art show and the Art Off the Main show at the Puck Museum in Soho, New York. In Florida, Doreen has won awards in juried shows at the Flagler County Art League, the St. Augustine Art Association and The Gateway Center for the Arts in DeBary.
Her paintings are also in private collections around the United States, Jamaica, Japan, Australia and Europe.
