Dee Doanes
Writer. Artist. Photographer. Creator
I’m an Atlanta based writer and fine art photographer, and co–creator of life.

Writing is my first love, especially poetry. Photography came about more than four years ago, as an experiment in creativity. Merging the two came naturally.

Welcome to my corner of the Universe, enjoy getting to know me. Feel free to email me, come over and do Agnihotra Ayurveda meditation with me, invite me to tea, buy me a pair of cute shoes. Oh, yeah and buy my art and book. Or book me for a live poetry or performance art event

Dee-Doanes-painting-aboutMe

Fine art photography, macro nature pictures, character study (narrative) photography, most produced on gallery wrapped canvas, with snippets of poetry. Currently doing macro photography of nature. Nature is my favorite studio.I love doing character studies of people. Natural light is my preference and I don’t normally use Photoshop. Currently working on sketches and paintings too. So expect my photography and art to transform continually.
Dirt and water, making natural paints. Sketching raindrops. Maybe a few abstracts with resin paint. I may eventually get into making sculptures, I’m sure it’s fun working with fire!
My good friend Ray inspires and guides me. He’s a prolific art collector with the most unique art collection I’ve ever seen. I keep telling him that I’m going pimp his collection and make tons of money on the Atlanta tourist scene giving tours of his home.
The Divine Creator-God. Christian poet, Helen Steiner Rice. Edgar Allan Poe. Stephen King. Nature. Spiritual music and chanting by Istvan Sky inspires me to write.
Salvador Dali’. What a lively character he was. Favorite quote of his, “I don’t do drugs, I am drugs.” Leonardo da Vinci. Pure genius, quite the polymath and well ahead of his time.
Helmut Newton and Gordon Parks
Master Sri Charles Davis, Dalai Lama, Oprah, my daughter Q
