Doraté's style reflects her exposure to many cultures. Born in Europe, she spent her early years in the Philippines and China, before returning to Europe after World War II. She studied art in Dusseldorf, Germany before becoming a citizen of the United States in 1960. These studies continued in America under such teachers as Barbara Nechis, Joan Heston, Frank Webb, Quida Canaday, Ethel Todd George and Joseph Perrin.

The artist's style is distinguished by the wide range of media employed. Her style is one of exuberance and use of vivid colors. Recent years have seen the growth of a mystical style in many of her works. Whether the subject is an impressionistic landscape, a mystical image or a dramatic abstract, Doraté's paintings invariably project a rich feeling of well being.

Noteworthy are oils and watercolors featuring Italian scenes of antiquity and collections of subjects such as fountains and other architectural subjects.

Doraté’s paintings are on display in private homes and commercial establishments throughout the United States and in several European countries. She has received numerous awards, at Exhibitions presented by the following Art Societies:
