Doreen Maller

Textile artist Doreen Maller won first place in the juried show for her piece “Moon.” She used found materials, including shells from Cosatside beaches, in producing the work on display at 400 County Center in Redwood City.

As she approached the age of 60, Half Moon Bay resident Doreen Maller resolved to embrace her creativity.

“I allowed myself to consider myself an artist,” said Maller. “And I allowed myself to dedicate some portion of time every day to creating art. It was a high mountain for me to climb to give myself that permission.”

April Seager is a staff writer covering events and endeavors in the Coastside community. She received a master of arts in German literature from Brigham Young University and completed graduate work in German studies at Washington University in St. Louis.
