Donna Cooke

Louisburg, NC


Donna Cooke lives in Louisburg, NC and is our Artist of the month for March! Here’s a little bit more about how she got started in art.


In 2007, I retired from Vishay Measurements Group and thinking ahead I decided to try a new hobby.  I found Fern Holt, an art teacher, and started taking classes. I had never painted before and totally new this was going to be a challenge.  Nervous and excited all at the same time, I started to paint.  With her guidance and patience, it all came together.

I paint on just about anything: canvas, wine glasses, jars, slate, seashells, wine bottles, beer mugs, Christmas ornaments, and more!  I have the best time trying to reduce a picture to put on note cards.  I have learned to draw a little...Yay!.  I never thought that would happen.

Then one day, I learned about the Rose Garden Boutique! I got in touch with Jennifer and talked with her about displaying my art. Rose Garden Boutique has been a blessing for me.  I am honored to be a part of this family.

I hope you enjoy my paintings. I am available to do custom work as well.
