Artist Biography
After working in the corporate world for many years Donna took an early retirement.  In January 2007, she took her first art class at Carroll Community College.  She continued with private watercolor classes with Felisa Flecker, workshops and classes with Tara Grim, Carolyn Seabolt, Sarah Abel DeLuca, and Skip Lawrence.  Presently Donna enjoys abstract painting, using acrylics, collage and mixed media with Ed Ramsburg, who continually encourages her to grow as an artist.
She has exhibited at Carroll County Community College – The Great Hall, Carroll Life Gallery, Circuit Court Building, Carroll County Arts Council, Frederick Arts Council (FAC), Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center (DVAEC), The Artists Gallery, FMH Crestwood Gallery, and Frederick County Art Association.  Within this past year, two of the art pieces have been shown at the Annapolis Statehouse Building.  Presently, original pieces and giclees are in private collections and consigned in a local shop.
When Donna was in the second grade art class, she remembered feeling the excitement when painting her first abstract.  Now she is focusing on acrylic, collage and mixed media abstracts – the larger the canvas, the better.  She enjoys expressing creativity through painting and going to new levels using the imagination with whatever materials are available.  The whole process from beginning to end is exhilarating! I love sharing my world of color with others.
