For as long as Doreen can remember, all she's ever wanted to do was draw and ice skate. She carried her love of drawing into college, attending Carnegie Mellon University as a fine arts major, before moving on to New York's School of Visual Arts, where she received her degree in illustration and cartooning. After graduation, Doreen worked at Marvel Comics as a production assistant before designing children's toys at Russ Berrie. Now, when she's not skating with her roller derby team, Doreen teaches art to kids and illustrates children's books. Some of Doreen's books include Frankly Frannie and Pinkabella.
