About the Artist
From the day she was able to grasp a pencil, Dona has had a love for art. She would sit for hours studying her Grandfather as he honed his craft at the easel, painting rugged landscapes in oil. Dona went on to study art at Cal State Long Beach and following graduation, began a career as freelance artist. Her first major commission was to paint near life-size paintings of the Stations of the Cross for St. Denis Catholic Church in Diamond Bar, CA where they hang to this day.
In the late 90s, Dona was propelled into the spotlight with her Heaven’s Little Angels series, which led to hundreds of licensed products and over $100 million in retail sales. She has since gone on to work with many of the top brands in the world including Home Shopping Network, NCAA Football, Realtree, Pillow Pet, Kleenex and Mariah Carey.
Dona and her family reside in the picturesque Rogue River Valley of Southern Oregon where the region’s natural beauty and abundant wildlife continue to inspire new works of art by Dona Gelsinger.
