Donna has been making wearable art since graduating FIT in 1976. She supported herself for years as an OR nurse, but continued to sew, and found her calling in creating Art Dolls. She came back to wearable art in 2010, designing and creating clothes for girls 12 months to 4 years. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and takes 30-40 hours to make. Her inspiration comes from vintage and antique catalogues and books. From there she designs and makes her own patterns, constructs the clothing and lovingly embellishes them with antique lace, ribbon, and buttons. The pieces reflect different eras, from the Victorian Age to the 1960's, though the 20's and 30's are her favorite decades. While the clothes she makes are influenced by other eras, she puts her own twist on them and they truly are unique.
