Doris Zinkaisen's realistic style made her popular as a portrait painter and she became a community artist. The subjects of her paintings, portraits of society, scenes from the parks of London and Paris reflect the lifestyle of the upper strata of society at that time.

Their murals can be seen on Queen Mary, now residing in Long Beach, California. In 1941, during World War II, the sisters worked as martial artists in Northwest Europe for the British Red Cross Society and the Order of St. John.

After the war, Doris Zinkaisen continued to work in London as a theater artist and from time to time held exhibitions of her paintings. She also designed the cover of the special issue of Everybody's Magazine, dedicated to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953.
