THE EXQUISITE PAINTINGS OF LOREN DOUCETTE!

JOYFUL!  VIBRANT!  UPLIFTING!  One of my favorite Cape Ann artists is Loren Doucette. Her paintings and pastels are beautiful and a joyful remedy to this time of global pandemic. Thank you Loren for sharing your artistry.

These images were borrowed from a google search but please contact her to arrange to see more.

Loren Doucette lives and works in Gloucester, MA. Loren’s work has shown in solo and group exhibitions on the North Shore regularly since 2006 and she currently works as Operations Manager of the Rocky Neck Art Colony. She received a BFA in Drawing and Painting in Spring 2013 from Montserrat College of Art where she graduated with Honors. She participated in Montserrat’s study-abroad program in Viterbo, Italy where her month-long studies demanded daily work on the landscape. It was there that her love of landscape painting grew and became her primary interest. Since 2013, she has extended her breadth as an artist and works in many styles pursuing a balance between abstraction and realism. Her work ranges from local scenes of Gloucester’s marshes and fishing docks to highly emotional abstract paintings using.predominantly Acrylic, Pastel and Watercolor. She has taught art for over 20 years at various places including Montserrat College of Art and the Peabody Essex Museum. Recently, she started an Art Mentoring Program working with eager artists in an encouraging way to help them achieve creative goals. Her work can be viewed by appointment per request at Loren Doucette Studio on Cripple Cove Studios 97 East Main Street in Gloucester, MA.
