Donna attended Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She teaches her students strong fundamental skills, interesting composition, and design principles in her drawing and color pencil classes. Donna’s art is about the positive aspects of life, the beauty that surrounds us, and images that bring peace and serenity to one’s spirit. Her art is straight forward in its interpretation; it is about the beauty of our world and is intended to remind the audience of special times and places in their lives. Her philosophy has been to celebrate the artistry and vision of the old masters who portrayed detail and technical skill.
