Growing up in a family of painters and musicians, Patricia Donovan/TA Donovan developed an appreciation for and a devotion to art. However, her passion for the arts percolated for years as she pursued a career in education – first as teacher and then as a principal. While creating- with her faculty - an elementary school for the arts within the Littleton (Colorado) Public Schools, she began pursuing her own creativity. Studying first at the Denver Art Museum and later at the Denver Art Students’ League, she found her way to figurative and landscape painting. In her work, you will find the influences of Ron Hicks, Kim English and Michael Lynch, her teachers, who demonstrate movement, light, and drama in their paintings. Viewers find that stories unfold in TA Donovan’s paintings - as light and shadows drift across the canvases.
