DONNA DUBREUIL FAVREAU
As an X-Ray technologist, I learned to see in black and white and shades of gray. I had to retrain my eyes and brain to see and think in color. Many “Paint by Number” kits in childhood, gave me an addiction to the smell of oil paint and linseed oil. When I realized that I could draw, I took classes with local Connecticut artists and did a lot of independent study. I showed watercolors and stained glass at local craft fairs for several years. I joined the Art Guild of Middletown, CT, Studio 53/Arts and Crafts of Meriden, took classes and workshops and became active in the art world.
My paintings hang in many homes throughout the United States, Canada and England. I recently sold two oil monotype paintings to the new Davis Heart Vascular Center at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA.
I live in Westbrook, Connecticut, with my husband, Michael and two cats. I have two adult sons and three grandchildren. It’s a beautiful thing! If you would like to contact me about my work, I can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I taught oil painting classes for senior citizens in Middletown and Cromwell, Connecticut, for twelve years and taught at the Salvation Army Adult Day Care Center while working part-time as an Assistant Town Clerk in Middlefield, Connecticut.
I’ve won numerous awards for my oils and a” best in show “ for my first pastel! I am now an elected member of the Clinton Art Society and amember of Maple and Main Gallery in Chester, CT, an associate member of the Madison Art Society. My new passion is plein air painting with the Madison group.
