Posted by: Coronado Arts 3 years, 2 months ago


Coronado Artist Doris Besikof has been named the Artist of the Month by the Cultural Arts Commission.

In 1994, Doris Besikof’ s friend and mentor, Denver painter Greta Hilb opened up a whole new world to Doris when she persuaded her to paint with her. Since Besikof’s retirement from the law in 2000, she has painted almost full time, with 11 years as Loew's Hotel artist and numerous one-woman shows and seminars. During times of CA fire disaster, she has used proceeds from the sale of her art for those in need.

Oil is a favorite among various mediums she uses. The style of her painting, from large abstract to figurative, is adapted to suit the subject matter. She is told that whatever the subject or style, her use of color makes paintings identifiable as her work.
