Education: B.A. Fine Arts, Washington State University
Donna McGinnis was born in Spokane Washington and grew up in an artistic family. Her mother was an artist, her grandmother a musician and her father a photographer. Drawing came naturally to her, as she had very vivid memories of admiring her father’s black and white photography. These silvery prints inspired McGinnis. Through his love affair with the still image, McGinnis learned composition, Chiaroscuro (light and dark tonality), form and line, in essence the basics of formal art theory. McGinnis took early private art lessons and later went on to major in art in high school and then was awarded her Bachelors of Arts at Washington State University. After graduation, McGinnis moved to California and settled in San Francisco. With a degree in graphic design, McGinnis soon found employment as a color consultant for Fiberboard Co. Here she selected interior and exterior color palettes for housing developments. It was during her spare time that she pursued her own artistic aspirations of painting full time. With dedication, McGinnis began selling more and more until soon, her dream of becoming a professional artist became a reality. She currently lives and works in Northern California and maintains a studio in Petaluma.

The Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco includes three of her drawings in its permanent collection and her work also appears in other numerous private and public collections. She has shown her work at the Oakland Museum, Arkansas Art Center, Triton Museum of Santa Clara, Crocker Museum in Sacramento and several other public spaces and galleries.

McGinnis paints in the landscape and abstract genre. Her works are contemporary and modern in composition. Both styles of painting are developed in the same way. Neither the abstracts or landscapes start with preconceived ideas. With the swirling of brushwork and layering of glazes, McGinnis creates her signature style of softness and a painting that glows from within.
