Donna Ewing is a native of New Orleans and her love of painting was inspired by her mother and grandmother's friend, Lorainne Shay, a neighbor of her family, where she would often invite the three over for art lessons. Donna eventually became recognized for her art through school projects and continued to paint as a hobby. It wasn't until she met her husband, Jimmy, that she became interested in painting wild game, first of which was a large deer she saw in a magazine. Locals became to appreciate her artwork and was selling it off of the walls at her restaurant, Ma Mama's in downtown New Roads. On a weekend trip to New Orleans about five years ago, she found herself admiring a heavy painting at Sutton's Gallery that resembled her style - painting with a spoon. The dealer of the gallery learned of Donna's artwork and inquired about her painting roosters. With only a few small renditions of the bird to show, of which he was impressed, he challenged her to paint a large one with the intention to invite her to sell in the gallery. After receiving a picture of her painting, Donna made the trip back to New Orleans to deliver her first piece to Sutton's, a standing rooster. Today, you can find her artwork at Ma Mama's Kitchen that now includes, roosters, egrets, flowers, and more. Her artwork is also still available at Sutton's Gallery.

Over 20 years a landscape artist, I’ve more recently begun to enjoy the beautiful colors and forms of the Louisiana swamps. I’m also known for my love of old barns in my work, as well, and how these relics can tell a story of days long gone. Bringing smiles and enjoyment of my art is the ultimate goal in my artistic journey.
