Donnalynn Chase is a self-taught artist who comes from a long-line of self-taught artists and craftsmen. After decades in an aerospace-corporate life, she graduated to coaching and facilitating workshops on the creative process. Collage is Donnalynn’s method of choice and came to her naturally through her obsession with collecting books and all things made of paper. Her current passion is mixed media collage using vintage papers. Over the last six years, she has worked (or rather played) from her home art studio located in San Jose.

I’m looking forward to seeing each of you at our meeting on Saturday, February 23rd. Kay Duffy, local artist and teacher, will be doing the demonstration at our meeting this month.

The painting done by Bobby Dixon at our last month’s meeting will be raffled off this month. Her finished painting is lovely and I know you won’t want to miss an opportunity to own it. I hope you all are enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve been having and are finding it inspirational for creating your own beautiful art. Remember, as you are out and about attending art classes and art meetings, if you come across a fellow artist you feel would share their art skills with our group; please ask them if they’d be willing to do a demonstration for us.
