About the Artist

Drawing from the time she could hold a crayon, Donna Welsh has been an artist all of her life. Painting is in her blood, and in her hair, and under her nails. Largely self-taught, she received her formal training at York Academy of Arts. She also holds a degree in Psychology from Albright College and is certified in several modalities in the Natural Health field. After operating a commercial studio in the seventies, she discovered that her true love was painting, although she still pursues graphic design, especially typography. Her work hangs in collections both in the U.S. and abroad.

She has taught adult drawing and painting classes for over thirty years, and currently facilitates therapeutic art classes for adults with severe mental illness and advanced dementia.

Donna divides her time among her art, natural health interests and her family. She currently resides in what she likes to call her Hobbit House in Mountville.
