About Donna Massey
Creative and fine arts have long been part of Donna Massey’s life. In high school she studied art, but in college pursued a degree in Christian Education and Music at Atlanta Christian College – now Point University. Through the years, she has enjoyed art as a hobby. After a career change, Donna was again able to refocus on her artwork.
Acrylics are Donna’s medium of choice, having discovered their versatility while in high school. She enjoys painting pastoral landscapes that depict a quiet and peaceful lifestyle – serenity for the busy, working wife and mother.
Local and national exhibits of Donna’s original paintings have been at the Carnegie Library in historic downtown Newnan, the Peachtree City Public Library, Newnan Theatre, Dr. Burson’s Office, the PAPP Clinic in Sharpsburg, and the Arts Clayton Gallery in Jonesboro. Since 2012, she has had paintings juried into the Newnan Coweta Art Association’s Annual Member Show.
From June 2017 to May 2018 year, two of her pieces were displayed in both the Office of the Governor and the House Appropriations Office Suite in Atlanta. In February 2018, she was part of a three woman show at West Georgia Technical College.
