Doris Joa lives and paints in Germany. Her original watercolor and oil paintings of flowers, roses, horses, small postcard studies, people (figurative), portraits and still lifes are in many international collections. Her painting style allows her to capture life in naturalistic realism. Doris’s rose paintings are elegant, the flower paintings are vibrant, the cats paintings are too cute to go away and the horse paintings are colourful. Her figurative paintings of children and young women create a narrative that invites the viewer to become lost inside the frame. Doris hopes you find beauty and joy in her work too.

A note from Doris:

“Welcome to my website. My vision is to create a site that is inviting and comfortable. One that feels like a superb quality magazine that you can’t wait to settle down into your favourite chair to read and enjoy with a cup of hot tea or coffee alongside you. I want my site to speak of elegance and the finer things in life – full of exquisite things that you want to read on and on.”
