Donna Green spent her early years on her grandparent’s New England farm, where she learned to value a pure and simple life surrounded by nature and loving relatives. Self taught, she began exhibiting her paintings when she was just fifteen years old. Donna has 14 illustrated books to her credit and more than thirty limited edition prints of her art have been published.
Her original paintings hang among many prestigious private collections around the world including a piece purchased by the White House during the first Bush administration. Today she and her children enjoy living on a beautiful five acre farm overlooking the ocean.
