Donna Gross

I am a fine artist living in Santa Cruz, Ca. My roots began in Los Angeles where I grew up and lived until 1988. After graduating from nursing school and working for a year in the city of my birth, I made my exodus and travelled and worked in my field. I practiced my career in nursing for 10 solid years before starting my family. Now my children are grown and off to college and I find myself at my easel everyday. I found the obsession of pastel painting about a year ago and haven't stopped. Everything is good in my world with a stick of chalk in my hands! Mostly I am drawn to landscapes but can be inspired by figures and the occasional still life. Viewing life through artist’s eyes has brought great joy to me. It is with gratitude that I share this joy with you.
