About Jennifer Donald

Every artist says 'I was born to create'. Ok, I say that too. I was the little girl who sneaked art coffee table books out of the library and hid them in my very messy desk because the librarian said I was too young for them. I stared at those pictures until they burned into my brain! I couldn't tell you what the painting was called, but I could show you exactly which book it was in and what page! I was a 7 year old art junkie.

I always loved painting and had training in watercolor, oils and acrylic. Being left-handed, oil paints and I have no business being near the same canvas. Acrylics and I learned to play together very well and we've been best friends for 30 + years.

Why the fascination with nostalgia? My parents had a lot of records and mostly due to the pictures on the album covers, I'd ask Mom to play them over and over. The soundtrack to my childhood was big band music and old radio shows, combined with all the antiques my mom collected and voila! you have my passion for a lifetime!

So why do I create now and where do I want to go? I often think that people are so busy in their lives that they stop seeing the beauty, the silly, the fun, the joy in the simplest things. Like 'Tune In Next Week', we tend to forget how cool it was to hear a story told to us and the excitement we felt as the climatic ending came. Or 'Winter's Flowers' and the beauty of a weed. Yep, a weed.

My paintings have won several awards and my works hang in many private collections in the United States, Canada and the UK. For 2012, I want to push myself outside of my comfort zone and find new ways to give my clients exciting and innovative works to own for their enjoyment.

I'm a transplanted Virginian via Detroit, Michigan and live in Colonial Beach, VA. I have a grown son and daughter who somehow survived their 'crazy mom', 2 spoiled dogs and I am married to the love of my life. My husband Darryl is a gem for being so supportive in my art career and my goal is to grow an appreciative client following. It a priority for me to promote the arts culture and support other local artist friends and patrons in Colonial Beach, VA and the Northern Neck area of Virginia.

So......... let's chat sometime. Give me a call, email me, or let's just go have a cup of coffee. We'll talk.
