TESTIMONIALS:

“Donna is my 'go to' tutor. The sort of tutor you always want around. She's dependable, but never at the expense of being innovative. She's well planned & organised, but highly creative. She can work in any medium you throw at her & with any group of people". 

"Donna's a true Community Artist. She can work quietly, with her head down, doing those invisible jobs, that receive no recognition. Or, she can lead on a headline project, that propels individuals & groups of people to work in new directions, using unexpected materials, resulting in surprising & beautiful outcomes".

Claire Douglas - Visual Arts Curriculum Manager, York Learning
