Karel Doruyter was born in 1942 in Rotterdam, Holland. He emigrated to Quesnel, BC with his family when he was 11 years old. Working in marine design for a number of years allowed him to explore the BC coast, which influenced his subject matter and style. Doruyter currently lives in Penticton, BC.
"Through my travels I have always been drawn to isolated places. In the past these were physical geographical parts of the world I have experienced. Now I find myself going inward, areas of spiritual and emotional isolation that I find disturbing and fascinating. I find recording the former on board or canvas much easier than the latter, but that only adds to the attraction."
