Dr. Hughes-Saurina began drawing and painting shortly after moving to Lower Bucks County, PA to join the Morrisville Veterinary Hospital.  She studied technique, design and composition from many talented local artists and is grateful to David Rivera, Gail Bracegirdle, Earl Lewis and gallery owner Debbie Crow. They say to ‘paint what you know’ and 35 years of practice deepened Donna’s knowledge of animal anatomy, personality and capacity for love. She believes that all of creation reflects God’s glory and loves to the curving lines, colors and textures of nature. Her favorite subjects are his creatures… wild and beloved pets!
