My name is Doreen Buchinski. I am a children's book author/illustrator living in Massachusetts. I have a degree in graphic design. I designed and Illustrated the new edition of middle grade novel, ME AND THE WEIRDOS by Jane Sutton,
(KTP Publishing, 2018). I am book designer and a contributing illustrator for
AN ASSORTMENT OF ANIMALS: A CHILDREN'S POETRY ANTHOLOGY,
(Writers’ Loft Press, 2018). I am a contributing poet and contributing artist for FRIENDS AND ANEMONES: OCEAN POEMS FOR CHILDREN,
(Writers’ Loft Press, 2020).
The conservation land and animals surrounding my home and Cape Cod beach scenes are frequent sources of inspiration. Mediums of choice are digital painting, graphite, and colored pencils—often used in combination, and watercolor when the mood suits me.
I enjoy trail and beach walks with my husband and our amusing Corgi, Ollie. When not creating, I can also be found tending to my gardens or beachcombing.
