  FINE ART EVENT              

    Donna is a Canadian artist  from the Greater Sudbury region of Northern Ontario.

During the early 1980’s Donna moved to BC then returned in 1985 to settle with her family in Sault Ste Marie Ontario.

Today her home is located in Southern Ontario just north of Toronto.

Throughout her life art has been a passion. She began painting at first in oils and then in her twenties she took a weekend watercolour workshop with Graham Scholes and everything changed. The unpredictability and challenge of watercolour captivated her interest and desire to explore the medium.

During the 1970's Donna began teaching elementary school and earned her  B.A. and B. Ed including a Visual Arts Specialist along the way.

Family and career were foremost for many years and it wasn’t until another workshop in 2004 with artist Helga Flower which rekindled her desire to enter the art world once again.

Donna entered local art shows and juried art exhibitions. Her paintings won several awards over the years and many of her paintings are

displayed in homes around the world.

While living in Sault Ste Marie Donna was

an active member of the Algoma Art Society.

She served as its president for two years,

and was also a member of her home town art club in Onaping Falls.

She is currently a member of the Barrie Art Club

and participates in local art studio tours and exhibitions.

 New Directions

          Donna has pursued new creative challenges

         and  techniques by taking workshops by

         many well-known , established artists

         throughout her career  .

         The playful and creative nature of the

         variety  of media used in these workshops

         has  provided her new and exciting


    .    Non representational art and

         abstracted realism are genres which

         are now part of  

         her creative direction.

         Donna loves the freedom of

         expression and the

         challenges that come with it.
