Donna Anastasi was born in Washington, DC, and lived in Maryland for most of her life. She ran a successful architectural design and drafting business in Maryland and recently retired to allow more time to embrace her passion of watercolor painting. In 2010, Donna and her husband bought a house in Phoenix, and have been full-time Arizonans for a couple of years.
Donna�s wonderful watercolor journey began in 2008 with a watercolor class taught by Maryland Artist, Brenda Kidera. She continued to paint with Brenda until she moved to Arizona. Donna�s paintings were exhibited in the BWS Mid-Atlantic Regional Watercolor Exhibition in 2010 and in 2012. She is a signature artist with the Baltimore Watercolor Society as well as the Sonoran Arts League. Donna has taught watercolor classes at the Foothills Community Foundation and loves helping others understand the mysterious medium.
