Donna lives and works in a beautifully situated farmhouse, on the western edge of the the Brecon Beacons; about 12 miles from our shop and gallery.
This location gives Donna easy access to her chosen subjects. She is often found down country lanes sketching old farm buildings, sheep, cattle and even wildlife, returning home to her studio to complete the paintings.
Donna Crawshaw was born in Woking, Surrey in 1960, the second daughter to the established artist, author and broadcaster, Alwyn Crawshaw.
The foundation of learning for her art came from her father who encouraged her from a very early age and later at school where she excelled in art related subjects and then later at West Surrey College of Art and Design.
"Only an artist with such love of the countryside and a dedication to its survival could depict it so accurately"
