Donna Knold

Donna Knold was born and raised in the Midwest. Her Native American mother, English father, and family were supportive of her art talent which manifested as soon as she was able to hold a pencil. In addition to her current work as a book illustrator and licensed artist, Knold has also worked as an interior designer and apparel designer.
Knold hand draws and paints "the old way" although she uses her graphic skills to finish pieces. She creates with mixed media including gouche, watercolor, colored pencils, and ink. She says, "If I can create something that brings a smile to someone's day, I can't think of a more rewarding goal in life."

She lives in the historic town of Liberty, north of Kansas City, MO, in a 1920s home. She and her husband have four daughters, 3 cats, and 2 dogs.
