Doreen Allen lived for thirty years in East Anglia, travelling and painting throughout Essex and Suffolk as well as extensively around her Norfolk home. The variable effects of light and atmosphere on the landscape, open as it is to the broad East Anglian skies, particularly interested her.
She preferred to work out of doors, finding her watercolours and pastels had a livelier freshness and spontaneity when completed on site, rather than being re-worked later in the studio from sketches, photos or memory.
She exhibited for many years with, among others, The Pastel Society, The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and the United Society of Artists. She also held many successful one-man exhibitions and her paintings are represented in many collections in the United Kingdom and abroad.
She was married to the painter, Ronald Crampton (1905 – 1985) and they lived together at Great Massingham Norfolk.
