| Donna was raised in New England and summered at Cape Cod; this is where her love for the coastal waters began. The scenes which speak to her, emotionally, relate mainly to these coastal waters and shorelines where she has lived both on the Atlantic and the Pacific her entire life.
Her creative soul has always been rejuvenated by the Coastal Waters. Its strength and energy have been her inspiration for her works of art.
She uses color to evoke an emotional response not only by the viewers but by herself while in the creative process. Some viewers speak of memories recalled while others see serene places to transport themselves. All experiences seem to enrich our lives and lift our hearts if even for only "a moment in time".
