About Marleah Doherty


The Artist

Marleah Doherty taught in the Buffalo Public Schools for 30 years. When she retired in 2004, she bought several used watercolor books. These books were her introduction to a new world of color and creativity. Although she has occasionally taken lessons and attended seminars, she is mostly self-taught. Her family and friends are her motivators and critics. Historic Buffalo sites as well as everyday Buffalo scenes are the inspiration for many of her paintings

Themes and Medium

Many of the paintings depict well known places in Buffalo and Western New York. Quality reproductions are available in various sizes by contacting Marleah via marleahdoherty@gmail.com 

Watercolor is Marleah's primary medium, but occasionally creates works of art with pastels.
