Doig states that his goal is to express the essence of the divine spirit that weaves through all living beings. “True artistic creation comes from transcending beyond time and space where all of our Higher Selves meet in understanding and pure light. This is why works of art across time have an enduring fascination for all of us. I am honored and honored each time that Spirit passes through me to create art that moves another, expressing a quality of our divinity beyond words… There is no end to the development of artistic skills, it is a constant journey full of surprises.

“If you’re an artist, you know that. You are driven to create at all costs. Images jostle in your thoughts and your dreams stumble over each other to be born. My best images come from deep meditation where my mind goes beyond the thoughts and images offered to me. You are not sure which should be created first and it changes every moment. I’ve come to realize that I don’t have to control the process or even know what the final work will look like. It’s so true that “a painting is never finished, it just stops at interesting places” [P.Gardner]. My opinions and judgment have never helped others to appreciate works of art. I am simply the conduit that creates, temporarily enjoys the art until it finds its place. Having a piece of art in your space that floats and winks and reminds you of your mystical nature and soothes you in times of stress is a worthy companion to have.
Doig and her husband have called the Village of Oak Creek their home since 2007. “Sedona is a place we both love because of the nature and the wildlife.” Doig has a deep love and respect for animals. “Along the way, I discovered how nature, animals, humans and spirits can be intelligent, loving and mystical. I am inspired to share the magic of animals because when I look into the eyes of an animal I do not see an animal I see a living being I see a friend
