A native Virginian, born in Alexandria and wandering through Central Virginia before moving back up to Woodbridge in 2007, Donna Liguria has always been a dabbling artist and painter, working mainly with acrylics on canvas. Her style is typically ‘painted realism’ rendering landscapes, seascapes, animals and pets, and wonderful places to be and see. She often gets comments, “is it a photo or a painting?”
Her life-long art experiences included a previous paint business, called WallDreams where she painted murals on walls in restaurants and homes around Virginia. Previous “non-art” work also included owning several restaurant businesses in Charlottesville and in Louisa, Virginia, and more recently working for a Northern Virginia IT company.
Mostly self-taught, Donna is inspired by beautiful colors, textures, sun light, and shadows with a passion to applying the captured vision to canvas, with thought to “painting it as real as it can be”.
A member of the Prince William Art Society (PWAS), and the Manassas Art Guild (MAG), Donna is very interested in promoting the local art presence and artists in Prince William County. Donna writes and posts on the PWAS Blog called Artistry Spin.
