New England artist Donna Atkins has always enjoyed drawing, although she didn’t start painting until 1994 when her youngest child entered Kindergarten and her oldest was in elementary school. After a few acrylics lessons, she began to paint at home, developing her own style of folk art.
Her designs, which have been referred to as “New England style primitives,” reflect the beauty of that region: the ocean, old homes, pastures, white spire churches, and the ever-changing seasons. Her paintings often convey a longing for “simpler times,” and much of her work incorporates words, old quotations or verses she pens herself.
Donna is so grateful to her family for all of their encouragement and help; because of them, her artistic dreams have become a reality.
