Doke was born in Ottignies, Belgium. She studied at E.N.S.A.A.D. in Brussels, under Pierre Caille in the ceramics section. She lived and worked successively in Brussels, Tourrette sur Loup, Alpes Maritimes, France, and currently Chaville, near Paris. Doke gives an idea of volume and depth while playing with the palette from white to gray to black, always reusing and enhancing materials considered as "poor." She creates a rigorous structure of round and square cells with "bird-women" characters bringing a playful humanity to an architectural setting.
Her selected solo exhibitions include: Gallery Le Miror, Brussels; Gallery Le Nombre d'Or, Nice; Gallery Tersac, Cannes; Banque d'Indochine, Cannes; Gallery l'Oeil Ecoute, Lyon; Art Actuel, Paris; Maison de la Culture, Beaune; MAC 2000, Paris; Centre Culturel Francais, Zaire; Gallery Ariane, Paris; and L'Atelier d'Encadrement, Paris.
Her work has been included in many group exhibitions in Belgium and France, and has traveled to Canada, USA, Japan, Spain, Germany, Russia, Denmark, Zaire, Portugal, and Korea.
