Escher, Winslow, & Me.jpg


My name is Sheila Dorris. I was originally on our Council in 2014 engaged in marketing and promotions, and after a long hiatus I came back in 2021. I now serve as the Chief of Grant-Writing and Marketing. As a long time volunteer in promoting, producing events and fundraising for nonprofit organizations, I am happy to be part of our campaigns for financial support, promoting our activities as well as our creative members.
