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 paints full time while offering art mentoring and art instruction to the community. 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.
