About the Artist






Now Available!

Donna's DVD, The You Factor: Powerful, Personal Design in Opaque Watercolor, filmed for Creative Catalyst Productions, is now available! To learn more, click HERE.



In Donna’s fun and fast-paced workshops, the emphasis is on finding techniques and strategies for adding “the you factor” to your paintings.

Workshop topics include:

  • Seeing subject matter creatively

  • Building strong abstract compositions

  • Working effectively with value patterns

  • Developing a personal visual language

  • Working towards a personal style

  • Expanding possibilities for spontaneity and personal expression using the elements and principles of design

  • Exploring watercolor’s full potential as both a transparent and an opaque medium

Donna’s workshops will invigorate you with equal parts inspiration, information, and direction. Working with your own subject matter, there will be plenty of time to consult, reflect, and evaluate as you consider new creative possibilities for your art. All levels are welcome.
