Donna Staats 

Pastels, Oils and Plein Air


Donna was born and raised in Chicago area. She is a graduate of The American Academy of Art in downtown Chicago.


Animals were always her favorite subject because they are just so much fun to paint. She loves how they move and the texture of their fur and their different personalities. Even though she works in oils and acrylics, she finds pastels more satisfying. She loves applying the layers of pigment to textured paper or board.
