Artist Biography
Donna spent most of her life as a self-taught artist focused on graphite and acrylic.  While she “dabbled” and remained drawn to art, she all but put away the easel to raise a family, attend college, and foster a career. Once retired from banking, she started her artistic work anew. Her first move, she found a good instructor and mentor. Secondly, she picked up pastels, an entirely new medium for her. The more she explored what these fabulous little sticks of pigment could do, the more she pushed herself into unknown territory. When asked “Why pastels?” she stated, “I don’t do anything by half. Finding a mentor that is both a great guide and fierce friend was paramount. She sparked a passion in me. I discovered what I seldom found in the acrylics. It’s the softness, the life, and the way the light just bounces off of the pieces.  I just can‘t get enough.” In two short years, Donna conquered a virtually unknown medium to having her own exhibitions in pastel. And as she says, “I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love, and I’m just getting started!” Donna has grown, and quickly.  She is now a multi-Award winning Artist.
Donna enjoys hearing from those that have visited her website: www.donnagodlove.fineartstudioonline.com. Take a walk through her portfolio. If you have any questions, concerns, or even criticisms, please leave her a message. While she is considered a Pastelist, she also works in oil pastel, colored pencil, and to some extent, watercolor. Donna will constantly test new mediums, but she never wanders far from her heart and passion with pastels.
