BIO Raised in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania where traces of Early Americana and bucolic landscapes were interwoven into her life experiences, Donna majored in painting & illustration at PhiladelphiaCollege of Art.An eventual move to Maine coupled with her love of the natural world inspired her soft New England pastel landscapes and folk images.
Recently I have returned to painting my small folk images for the sheer enjoyment of creating light, effortless, whimsical scenes. While I truly love working with pastels and oils, the ease, freedom and satisfaction I get from these tiny "jewels" has been a refreshing outlet for me. Hope you enjoy them too.
