Doreen Smith

As a young child, I delighted in creative activities, and throughout the years since, I have continued to follow my heart in sharing with others artistically, how I see, and imagine, life’s special moments. Without formal training, I have found happiness “dabbling” with drawing, painting, collage, and other artistic approaches.
During my nearly thirty-year career with the Yankee Candle Company, I tapped into trends and everyday experiences to develop both fragrance ideas and their interpretation through label imagery, fragrance name and candle color. Leaving behind the corporate design world, I have now rekindled my earliest passion for freely creative art.
As someone who is most at home by the ocean, I am pleased to be a member of the Hull Artists group in Massachusetts. Currently, I am producing watercolor illustrations for a “Seaside” series of children’s books authored by a family member and inspired, in part, by life at the South Shore. An animal lover,  I have most recently discovered a new affinity for developing pet portraits with acrylics on canvas.
I am excited to start this new journey, and look forward to sharing my creative passion. Commissions are welcomed.
