Donna has loved to draw people, particularly their faces, since childhood. For her, the beauty of a face—its uniqueness, expression, even its irregularities—offers a way to glimpse a person’s character and capture a special moment, a transitory mood.

She has studied with Charles Diehl, Victoria Wagner, Elizabeth May, and Tom Edgerton.
