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.
