Donna Lee Gustafson is a Minnesota artist who grew up in the far north area of the state. From a young age, she has spent a great amount of time in the woods and around our beautiful lakes and rivers, where she collected and photographed various natural findings for her artistic inspiration. 

After recently retiring from full time work in the medical field, Donna had the opportunity to be a student at a botanical art class at the Grand Marias Art Colony, under the guidance of Denise Walser-Kolar. She has taken subsequent online classes with various ASBA artists. Donna has been creating drybrush watercolors on vellum since the summer of 2022 and also paints with chalk pastels.

Donna currently lives in Roseville, Minnesota.
