Award winning North Carolina artist, Addren Doss, works in oils and pastel, and has been painting professionally for over twenty-five years. Her paintings of landscapes and animals are filled with light, and bold strokes of vibrant color.
After a twenty-year career as a graphic artist Addren attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro to study art. She also studied with a number of noted American artists, and her main teacher and mentor has been Albert Handell, master pastel and oil painter. Since she has been fortunate to study with Mr. Handell and others, she feels a strong responsibility to pass along what she has learned by teaching workshops in oil and pastel. Her favorite thing to teach is plein air painting since she believes working from life is so important.
Addren is a master signature member of Women Artists of the West, member of excellence of the Southeastern Pastel Society, a founding member of the Piedmont Outdoor Painting Society, and member of the Pastel Society of North Carolina. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections across the country and in Europe. You can see her work by visiting her website, www.addrendoss.com.
