Dorene Kidd, a founding member of the Auburn Old Town Gallery, considers herself very lucky to have been raised in the country outside of the Gold Rush town of Auburn. She began drawing at a very young age and always knew that she wanted to be an artist. She is a self-taught artist that draws just what she sees. Dorene has tried her hand at many different mediums, such as ink, watercolors, oils, colored pencils and using beads to draw a scene. She has won several awards and her work is part of private and corporate collections here and abroad.
