Donna Long

Donna Wilson Long
American, 1937

Donna Wilson Long began her adventure as an artist after having children and a career as a horse trainer in her native California. She received a BA in Psychology from Vanderbilt University and an additional Degree from Sonoma State University in Humanistic Studies. Her artistic endeavors started as a photographer traveling the world and showing her work from San Francisco to Oxford, England.

 Her vibrant paintings tell their stories with lively figures and creatures participating in all manner of activities inspired by her adventures in exotic locales. The paintings often contain social, environmental, and political metaphor and more than likely a good dose of irony. Donna’s work often includes horse imagery due to her lifelong love and relationship with these noble beasts. All of this is brought to life through her Palm Beach perspective and naughty sense of humor!
