Hello, my name is Donna Carpenter. I have always been interested in Arts and Crafts. As a young girl and mother I would do needle work, including cross stitch, crewel and smocking. My husband and I have always taken on DIY projects including flipping houses. Ten years ago I took a painting class at my church and I fell in love with it. I continued classes with the Matthews Artist Guild working mainly with water based oil. After 45 years in Charlotte NC and retirement my husband and I moved to Flagler Beach. I will continue to find inspiration in everything around me.
