about the artist

side

sculptor, painter, writer, l.t. dougherty has been creating painting and sculpture from an early age. A graduate of Bealart and Ontario College of Art, her myth cabinets have been exhibited across Ontario since 1990, and has works in private collections across North America. Coining the phrase “myth cabinets” in 1992 to describe her mixed media assemblage works created mostly in boxes, she creates her work from ‘garbage’ and recycled materials. Her recent work incorporates painting, mixed media and collage.

For information on commissioning a portrait or myth cabinet, or exhibiting her work, please contact the artist the ‘contact’ link in the left-hand menu.
