Doreen McKenney
Illustrator and Czech Folk Artist
Doreen received a BA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design followed by a career as an in-house artist. She has been volunteering for over 40 years at the Czech – Slovak Sokol organization in Saint Paul. She has led the crafts for 23 years at the Children’s Cultural Camp, and providing Czech recipes in cooking classes for the camps. Presently retired, she continues to volunteer and teach all ages groups to weave goose feathered pastry brushes, weave split straw ornaments, make cornhusk figures, and her latest, simple bobbin lace designs. You can find her Czech cards, coloring books and tote bags available in the museum shop at the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids, IA. Doreen also was part of a team that created the large puppets that have been exhibited previously at the International Festival of Burnsville.
