About Doane

Doane's commercial art work has focused on retail tile and stone design projects for local Monterey area  homeowners, designers, architects, contractors, and tile suppliers. This work has provided Doane a unique opportunity to most effectively combine his earlier years of architectural design and graphics fine arts work in one highly focused and creative tile and design practice. Doane and his wife, Sara, reside in Carmel California with their two dogs, "the girls."

Doane is now concentrating on his fine arts creations. This includes new paintings done outside, "en plein aire" working in this beautiful coastal area that has inspired him so much over the years and new drawings and other media he is experimenting with.

Take a look at his fine arts website for more information and examples.
