Welcome to the website of german artist Doris Joa.
Doris has a big passion for nature and beauty and this can be viewed in her Watercolor Painting Gallery & in her Oil Paintings. She creates oil and watercolor paintings in a realistic romantic style. The favorite mediums are watercolor and oil.

Doris Joa lives and paints in Germany. Her original watercolor paintings & oil paintings of flowers, roses, horses, 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 art, too. The watercolor paintings and oil paintings are created in different sizes, from small (like 2″x3″) up to large (around 40″x40″).
