Xylos Art and Design was founded by Doris Cheung in 2019. 

Mission: To bring you joy, hope, and comfort through my love for art, culture, and spirituality.


     My name is Doris Cheung. I am an artist and a developmental psychologist located in the Finger Lakes Region in New York.

     One of my earliest memories is sitting at a children’s table doing an arts and crafts project with my mom. I felt peaceful, happy, and loved. This was likely the beginning of my love for arts and crafts. I believe we all have been given gifts from God and surely this is mine. He has used my gift of creativity to get me through tough periods in my life.

     Life is a journey, and we may not have much control over what we encounter on our paths; however, through our art, we can make the impossible possible. I love to explore and experience the fun and meanings in different parts of the journey. Some parts may be beautiful and blissful, while others may be more demanding and challenging. Yet through each experience, is an opportunity to learn and grow.

     I hope my art can help to create and inspire those opportunities. I would like to pass the positive, warm, and supportive messages through this ministry to encourage, inspire and heal you!

     Within my page you will see my love of watercolor, oil, and pastel paintings, as well as paper crafts, art journaling, and many other creative ideas. 


     Doris holds a doctoral degree in Developmental Psychology, is happily married, and has a daughter. She was born in Hong Kong and is a fluent speaker of Cantonese, Mandarin, Hakka, and English.

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
