about - Donna Haney Art Studio, Bethlehem, PA

Presently  my time is devoted to both painting landscapes, realistic portraits, and drawing cartoon portraits from life at social events such as festivals, fairs, and parties.  

I also do realistic portrait sittings by appointment in my studio, or portraits from photos when the subject is not available for sitting. The portraits are done in oil, pastel, or charcoal.
Painting au plein aire landscapes has been a passion of mine for many years.  Most landscapes are painted in oils of the local areas in Pa.   The beauty of the natural landscape, the way the light illuminates the fields, streams  and forests, the colors of the seasons, the atmosphere and spirit of a place, are my inspiration.  My paintings are generally completed entirely on location, whether it takes 1 or more visits.  I feel it's important to capture the light, color, shapes, and atmosphere with feeling that being present supports. 

In 2014 I began painting for live events with a wedding reception commission, followed by another. I am finding expression in this creative field of art and entertainment to be rewarding.  If you will be having a wedding reception and interested in a special painting of the celebration, please contact me at ( cell ) 484 809-2843.

Murial Corcoran was my first art teacher at age 6  until age 15.  Later, I  attended  painting workshops with insructors such as Bob Rohm, Kenn Backhaus, T.M. Nicholas, Robert Doney, and Tim Weaver; studied painting and drawing at the Pa. Academy of the Fine Arts, The Baum School Of Art, and Advanced Oil Painting and Art History at the Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, Pa.
