Before MDUMC developed the Music and Arts Center, students gathered in Lauri Cragg's private studio for classes. Donna was one of those original students, carving out time for art from her full-time position as director of Children's Ministries at MDUMC. Donna has studied with Lauri, Ellen Anne Burtner and others. Several years ago, following her retirement from the church, Donna was asked to combine her theological education with her love of art, resulting in the addition of Spiritual Art Journaling to the Lauri Cragg Studio lineup. Donna has used her intuitive creativity and multi media expertice inspire the Collage and Journaling classes for the last three years.
Donna lives in Baytown with her husband Sonny. When not in her art studio, Donna serves as the volunteer Director of Children's Ministries at First UMC La Porte.
