Doris was a highly talented but unrecognized artist having done many oil paintings and pen and ink drawings, mostly notably of Native American life. She also did extensive art design work on a rifle engraving presented to an American President.
As she was half Native American of the Blackfoot tribe, Doris was also known as "Firefly" to her Native American friends. Her extensive associations and friendships with other Native Americans led her to be offically adopted into the Narraganset tribe based in Rhode Island.
