Doris Brown studied painting at the renowned Burslem School of Art. She then went on to work for the Josiah Wedgwood Pottery company as a Pottery Designer.
She was a friend of Reginal Haggar, the celebrated Stoke-on-Trent watercolourist. This association helped her introduce watercolour classes to the art school. This, in turn, lead to Doris running her own watercolour classes across North Staffordshire for some 40 years. Because of this she is very well known in the district.
Doris is a Full Member of The Society of Women Artists. This unique group has held an annual exhibition in London of the work of women artists since 1857. It has introduced many famous names to the world of fine art appreciation.
Doris is President of the Oulton Watercolour Soceity, Staffordshire.
