Globe-trotting artist recognised
ARTIST, print maker, yoga teacher, mother, wife, psychotherapist and globe trotter, Doriel Hall has had plenty of creative inspiration throughout her life.
Mrs Hall is the inaugural artist of the month for the Tweed Valley Artists Cooperative in Tylagum - a title well-deserved with her countless paintings and ten books in her portfolio.
Throughout a full and busy life, she's studied art in England, exhibited her work in London, won countless awards, raised four children while living in Cyprus in the Mediterranean, ran a small art gallery, written books on yoga and in 2004 retired in Murwillumbah with her husband Michael.
Her most recent work is her autobiography entitled Welcome: My Path towards Peace and Goodwill.
And while she is now devoting most of her time to writing, she still finds the time to work on colourful prints on glass.
"I love the different depths you can find working with prints, as less paint comes away from the glass with each print," Mrs Hall said.
"I like to finish with watercolours afterwards which resist the oils.
"They've got 29 pieces of my work at the gallery now.
"They contacted me and twisted my arm and I've been a founder member of the cooperative for six months."
Mrs Hall will be at the Tylagum Gallery in the Tyalgum Hall on Saturday March 24 from 11pm (NSW) to 1pm and 2.30pm to 4.30pm to meet and greet customers and answer questions about her work.
She will also be signing copies of her new autobiography.
