About Donna:

Donna is a member of the Pastel Society of the Southwest, in Dallas, Texas. Her pastels have been in Juried shows throughout Michigan, Indiana and Texas. Texas juried shows include the Richardson Civic Show 2017 and the Frisco “Arts in the Atrium” shows in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. The PSSW member show in Grapevine hung her paintings in 2016, 17 and 18. The Keller, TX show 2018, displayed mix media paintings of Acrylic Ink and Pastel and Pastel paintings. In addition, her pastels are currently shown at the Wylie Art Gallery, Wylie TX. and at the Art Gallery at Filtered, a neighborhood coffee shop in McKinney, TX where she curates the art gallery. Most recently, three of her pastels were displayed in the “God’s Abounding Love”, show at the ArtReach Gallery in the Lovers Lane United Methodist Church, Dallas, Tx. She has taught private and small group art lessons in pastel, oil and acrylic painting, and welcomes new students.

Previous to her move to Texas, Donna was a practicing psychologist and hypnotherapist in St. Joseph, Michigan. She feels that art is the window to the inter life of people. She has utilized art to help children, teens and adults verbalize their emotions. Art is a non-complex way to access the emotional life, and a creative expression of deep, inner emotions. It brings satisfaction and healing to those who utilize the creativity within themselves. Whether one is an artist or an art lover, art quietly enhances our daily lives with color, perspective and joy.
