Thanks for visiting my site!
I am always evolving as an artist and entrepreneur. It's important for me to challenge myself with new ideas and concepts. I also love to add whimsy and fun to my pieces.
For eight years I have worked as a fine jewelry designer, and before that, as an interior designer. My jewelry collection,Doryn Wallach Jewelry, was inspired by the Art Deco period as well as architecture and home decor. I won some exciting awards* for my jewelry and saw my creations featured in many publications, including Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair. My jewelry was also featured in a major motion picture starring Emma Thompson.
Shortly before lockdown, I launched a podcast called It’s Not a Crisis.** I produced over 50 episodes and built a fan base that grew to 25,000 followers. Along the way I engaged in dozens of eye-opening and inspiring conversations with women in their 40s who, like me, are beginning to reconsider their definition of success.
My passion has always been fine art and I have recently started focusing my artwork on the idea of embracing imperfection (inspired by the wonderful women I have met through my podcast) through Kintsugi, photography, embroidery/needlepoint and gouache abstract paintings (scary for this recovering perfectionist, but love it).
My journey in these art forms is just beginning, so I hope you'll join my mailing list below and follow my progression.
