About the Artist:
Donna Bland is a nationally known impressionist artist.
To achieve her passionate dream of becoming a professional she studied art at The Student Art League in New York, Scottsdale School of Art, the University of Georgia and Tyler Jr. College.
She continued to study with many of today's master artists and has painted for years with artists in California, New York, Georgia and Texas. Artists that continually inspire Donna are John Singer Sargent,Nicolai Fechin, Emile Gruppe', Richard Schmid and Joaquin Sorolla.
As an art student in Georgia, Donna learned to paint scenes that interested her and later realized that art subjects are unlimited. " My intention is to create a lasting visual reference of natural beauty. I love to learn, develop new approaches to stretch my artistic boundaries, create and share what I have experienced with others. Whether painting for someone with a special request, leading a workshop, painting outdoors in the Texas Hill Country, Arizona, Colorado, California or Mexico - my passion is creating a painting that reminds someone of a special moment, place or person in their lives".
As her talent grew, individuals asked her to teach them to paint. She quickly learned that sharing her talent with others in workshop settings was a natural extension of her passion for art. Donna has found that her sold-out workshops is attributed to her love of art, a relaxed, pleasant environment that enhances the learning experience and the professional hand-on assistance to each artist.
Donna is a member of the Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society, the Austin Plein Air Painters, American Women Artists and Artists of Texas. She is recognized worldwide for her extraordinary talent and has received numerous awards and has paintings hanging in many corporations and private collections around the world.
