Born in Long Island NY, all Doreen ever wanted to do was draw and ice skate!
For school, she attended Carnegie Mellon University as a fine arts major, then moved on to New York’s School of Visual Arts, where she received her degree in illustration and cartooning.
In between, she sold ice cream at Disney World and ran errands for MTV.
After graduation, she worked at Marvel Comics as a production assistant where she met her lovely husband. After a few years working alongside super heroes, she went on to do product design at Russ Berrie. Now, she works as a freelance illustrator and designer from the comfort of her home (in fuzzy slippers)... with her daughter and puppy Baxter Blue Cheese by her side!
