Donna Whitsitt, artist, hiker, camper, lover of nature, translates her relationship with the natural world onto paper using colored water.
Sometimes these creations remain paintings that are displayed in galleries. Other times, pieces of paintings become part of everyday items.
Donna shares her experience with nature by designing bookmarks and magnets which can be part of a person's life on a daily basis.
With the help of her daughter, Katy Heath, who makes the art work shine, the paintings are turned into one-of-a-kind jewelry: pendants, earrings and bracelets.
These "Expressions of Nature" are Donna's way of sharing her love of nature with you.
