Donna Wilson Instructor/Artist Bio

Donna Wilson has devoted a lifetime sculpting an authentic
lifestyle. A fourth generation rancher on the Cowboy Trail south of
Longview, she’s intimately familiar with the entire lifestyle…”the
richness, the imagery, the history…” and draws from the natural
world around her.

Donna sculpts in bronze with a passion for making it right. She has
been able to draw from a rich cultural heritage to build an
extensive body of Western art over 20 years, with a focus on one of
the most “noble” service animals: “I’ve worked with horses my whole
life, ridden professionally and for fun... there just isn’t a more
noble beast ever known to mankind. They are just a glorious
animal.”

Breathing life into horse sculptures is about making them come
alive. It is in the balance of form and feeling: to know what's
underneath, the bones and muscles that give structure to form, then
to feel how a horse experiences life, expresses movement and
emotion. The sculptor's job is to get themselves out of the way so
that horse can start breathing on its own.

As a teacher, Donna brings this unique experience and personal
passion into workshops to help others rediscover their own yearning
to create: “I help the people whose hearts want to create, to get
them back in their own art.”
