About Mary Doering Photography


Artist Statement
Resume
  • Mary Doering grew up in North Dakota. She studied Interior Design at the University of Minnesota and Ceramics at the Museum School in Pittsburgh. Later she received her degree in Psychology from Lesley College. She has taught Ceramics in Connecticut and Art for the Mind, Body and Spirit in Massachusetts. She is also a published poet and has won awards both nationally and internationally in printmaking and photography. Her work has been included in more than forty solo and group shows. This award winning artist is also a co-founder of Artsynergies, a group of artists dedicated to expressing their vision using the best of traditional and technological tools.

    Doering is an unconventional photographer who mixes other media into her process to create highly stylized work that blurs the boundaries between photography and other visual mediums. While photography is often the main component in Doering’s work, the image may be sanded or obscured with paint before it is combined with her original paintings and drawings. These elements are assembled in Photoshop where they are tailored for color, content and design. She works intuitively, preferring surprise, as she layers a multitude of images, textures and shapes.

    All of the work is completed on an 3880 or 9890 Epson printer using archival inks over diverse materials: silk, metal, handmade textured substrates or paper. When printed, each image may be further illuminated with gold or pearl iridescence. The final results achieve Doering’s goal of expanding her artistic expression by combining traditional creative processes with new digital printmaking techniques.
