Originally from Anoka MN, Ms. Doyle taught art for over ten years in the Twin Cities metro area. In addition to classroom teaching, Ms. Doyle is an exhibiting painter. Her artwork can be viewed at http://www.mnartists.org/janelle-doyle?rid=313254. If she isn’t teaching or painting, Ms. Doyle is most likely searching for interesting vinyl records to add to her collection.
