Brief Artist's Bio
Dr. Hughes-Saurina began drawing and painting in watercolor shortly after moving to lower Bucks County in 1985 to practice veterinary medicine. Her paintings are full of light and color that resonates through contrast and complements. Expressive eyes bring animal faces to vibrant life. Shapes morph and flow into fanciful creatures. She works primarily in transparent watercolor or oil on panels to acheive glowing glazes.
Donna's works have been exhibited in several juried shows in Bucks County Pennsylvania including the annual Phillip's Mill Art Show and Canal-Frame Crafts in Washington's Crossing. Most recently, her pieces have benefitted local charity events: The "Help a Pet at Morrisville Vet" Fund at the Morrisville Veterinary Hospital and The Crossings Animal Sanctuary.
Donna Hughes-Saurina divides her time between veterinary practice and painting. She lives in Langhorne, PA with her husband, garden, assorted rabbits, squirrels, birds and three cats.
