 Art has the ability to change lives.  It is simple, gentle, but powerful when it touches a soul.

Donna works with adults who have intellectual disabilities, encouraging the enjoyment of artistic expression along with supporting the participants goal to exhibit and sell within the contemporary art scene.  Donna also works with “at risk” young girls within the local high schools of the Great Lakes Community.  Her programme ‘artheart’ uses art to reach out to individuals and then through the gentle process of painting encourages relationship building, coping skills and self-esteem building.  Artheart has been running for three years and has had great success within the community.
