Description
After Doris and Heinrich were divorced in early 1955, she started driving to parts unknown and ended up in the Pacific Northwest. In Seattle she studied printmaking at the University of Washington with Glenn Alps who taught her lithography and collagraphy. After graduation she landed a job teaching art at Everett Junior College in Washington. In the late 1950s she travelled to France to study printmaking with Stanley William Hayter who had returned to Paris and re-opened Atelier 17 in 1950. She continued to correspond with Hayter throughout the fifties and sixties.
