   Doreen St. John has managed to nurture her artistic talent throughout a lifetime filled with the responsibilities of being a single mother of two and a full-time educator. It was only in 2010 that she was able to retire from her full-time work in order to concentrate solely on her painting. In that short time she has developed her skills in multiple mediums and received recognition for her work from the American Impressionist Society, the Oil Painters of America and the Pastel Society of America, all of which have awarded her Signature Membership. St. John has been invited to participate in juried exhibitions both nationally and internationally and has received numerous awards for her work. She has been featured in major art publications and has been a faculty member for the Plein Air Conventions of 2017 and 2018. 

   St. John wrote to us about her journey as a teacher and artist and tells us about her materials and processes in working in both pastel and oil. She began by writing to us about her earliest artistic memories.
