About the Artist

Donna started her career as a decorative painter in 1992.  She has studied many different styles of painting and has achieved Gold Level as a Jenkins Certified Art Teacher, and Silver Level with Winsor & Newton/ColArt of America.  In 2003 she took two classes with Mary Owens.  Because she found Mary’s Pen & Ink with Oil Rouging a unique easy technique, she decided, after hearing about the Teacher Certification Program, she wanted to become one of Mary’s teachers.  She signed up for the program in October and earned her Certification in November 2005.

Donna is a member of SDP, the Leatherstocking Decorative Artists, leader for the Northeast Region of Teachers & Educators of Art Materials, and a charter member of  Artist United.  In 2003 she had an article published in The Decorative Painter magazine. She has published several pattern packets for her easy style of traditional oil painting. 

Her education is on going “you have to keep ahead of your students to make it interesting for them, so you always need to learn new and exciting things to do”.

Her love of teaching has enabled her to travel teach throughout the United States and Canada.  Donna’s mission is to show people how easy and fun painting can be. 

She has won several awards, including best of show in local competition.  Her work is represented in several local galleries, and in private collections in the United States, Canada, and Japan. 

Donna is available for classes in her area, and enjoys traveling to other areas to teach.  You may also contact her for any of the products in Mary’s line.
