Doris grew up just six miles from the ocean on the gulf coast of sunny Florida. After college her dormant gypsy blood surfaced and she began her wanderings; she has lived in Guatemala, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Honduras. Her vagabond ways were tempered when the little guy came along. Gabriel is her world and life is wonderful with him in it. They currently call Tennessee home where she stays quite busy keeping up with Gabriel’s social life, teaching English as a Second Language, and scrapping, of course. <br /><br />Doris has always enjoyed photos and the stories they tell. As a child one of her favorite pastimes was digging through her mother’s collection of old photographs and wondering what the people in them would tell her if they could speak. She loves that scrapbooking allows her to share her stories and thoughts with her son, family, friends, and future generations. Doris would describe her work as structured freestyle, a hodgepodge of fun with a solid foundation. She currently designs for Jenni Bowlin Studio and American Crafts and has been published in Scrapbook Trends, Creating Keepsakes, BHG Scrapbooks Etc., Memory Makers, and Cards.
