Interests and Personality

BiographyAs a professional graphic designer and artist, Doranne Alden's preferred painting medium is watercolour. She enjoys working on various subjects and is mostly inspired by the colour of the composition rather than the subject matter itself. She was born in 1963 on the island of Malta and moved to Germany in 1996 and lived there for almost 7 years. She studied Art for a number of years at the Polytechnic School in Malta and also took various short courses in Graphic Design and Interior Design. Her work experience spans several years with various advertising agencies and eventually, before moving overseas, she ran her own advertising company. During the years spent in Germany, she held drawing and watercolour classes for adults. In 2006 Dora, won first prize in the Watercolour Section in a competition organised by the Society of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce, in Malta. As a graphic designer Dora has published photographic calendars, posters and postcards on Malta.

Thanks for the visit Dora. It is hot as to be expected here, after all it is almost August. Stay cool and dip your hot bones in the Mediterranean.
