Donna Tuten


Roanoke, VA


A native of Richmond, Virginia, artist Donna Tuten now resides and paints in Roanoke. After raising her family and moving to the beautiful Roanoke Valley, Donna began to explore her long held passion for art. She immediately stood out in early classes. Her emerging style became about a subtle weaving of color and light. The creations offer expressions of timeless imagery, yet with a refreshingly new curiosity. Her painting is more than visual narrative. Donna saturates our senses with her generous affection for finding the simple beauty in the world around us. Donna prefers to work in oils, but occasionally desires the quick drying time of acrylics. Her inspirations can be drawn from plein-air or painted from the photographic art of Douglas Frassa, her confidante and soul-mate.

Collectors are taking notice. With a string of art awards to her credit already and representation in several established galleries, Donna Tutenís graceful style is enhancing many homes and businesses throughout Virginia and beyond.

Donna is the proud mother of two grown children and an avid scuba diver, nature lover, traveler, and explorer.
