Doris Mies Hunt attended The Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles as an advertising and illustration major. While there she studied classical painting and drawing under Lorser Feitelson and contemporary watercolor under Barse Miller.
As art director in a Los Angeles advertising agency, Doris received an Honorable Mention in the first Art Directors' Show after WWII.
Moving into a challenging career as a free-lance artist, she illustrated a dancing banana that was eventually used as the motif for the Chiquita Banana logo.
Later while living in Covina, California, with her husband, William and their three children, she continued painting studies under Robert Hallett at Citrus College where several of her pieces are in the college's permanent collection. She also helped organize The Friends of the Citrus College Art Gallery.
One of her most recent works is "Sundown at Newport", a contemporary view of the Balboa Pavillion from Balboa Island.
"Sundown at Newport" brings a timeless sense of location to a familiar icon for anyone who has visited this Southern California beach resort.
