When she is inspired by someone or something she has to paint them. Donna was born in Flint, Michigan and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada Ms. Wayman finally settled in Central California, wanting to paint out of the box paintings that feel good and that take your breath away with color that vibrates with every brush stroke. Donna's paintings have won many awards and recognitions. Her works have been reproduced as posters, movie posters, signed and numbered prints and giclees' t-shirts and murals. Donna's work is very versatile and she never limits herself. The world is a beautiful place and she wants to see and paint as much of it as she can. Painting has always been my therapy. I was a very shy child and my art was my only way to communicate. It was the only thing that made me feel special.
That's why I think art is so important for children. It gives them self confidence and a way to express themselves. As a mother of 3 I know how art has helped my children. Art is an essential part of our lives. Art recorded our history before there was a written language. Art is a part of every culture. It's what makes us all unique. That is why we need to teach art in school and at home and to encourage our children's creativity. Teach a child to love art and you will teach a child to really see and love the world. Donna
