Donna Berger's Profile

About

Since childhood, I have always loved drawing. painting and creative crafting. I would make my dolls special decorated beds and chairs and other things from toilet paper rolls and tissue boxes. I studied art in high school in an extra class instead of study hall and won an art award my senior year. I always wanted to pursue a career in art, but never did, because I just thought I wasn't good enough.

I really sort of gave up my painting until my mother gave me a book by Lin Wellford and that is when I created my first bunny on a rock with her. Been painting rocks ever since and have come to really enjoy painting animals. Is is a challenge finding the perfect rock for a project or just finding an unusual shape and creating the image you see on it.

Since childhood, I have always loved drawing. painting and creative crafting. I would make my dolls special decorated beds and chairs and other things from toilet paper rolls and tissue boxes.

I really sort of gave up my painting until my mother gave me a book by Lin Wellford and that is when I created my first bunny on a rock with her. Been painting rocks ever since and have come to really enjoy painting animals. Is is a challenge finding the perfect rock for a project or just finding an unusual shape and creating the image you see on it. My custom paintings, taken from photographs of your pet, are so satisfying to create. I have painted a variety of dogs, cats, owls, bunnies, frogs, turtles, bugs and even ground squirrels, pigs, moose. I am always looking for smooth rocks with the perfect shape for my work.

Although most of my recent work has been acrylic on rocks, I also enjoy working in pencil, charcoal, watercolor and pastels and have expanded my portfolio in the all of the above listed media and not just on rocks.

If you have a specific animal or anything you would like painted on anything, please contact me and I would be happy to create a special, one of a kind piece for you. My rocks make great memorials for all you pet lovers or your pet lover friends.

Although I seal all my painted rocks with a UV acrylic spray before selling them, I do suggest you re-coat every year or two, if you put them outside, to help preserve the paint.
They will last for years and years.
