Donna Jeanne Koepp - Artist

I'm a native Nevadan who has created one form of art or craft since I was a kid. I always come back to drawing, painting and using animals as my subjects. My love of vintage oddities, whether old sheet music or oil cans, have surfaced in my recent work.

I developed a creative strategy that keeps me fresh and working. I arrive at my art space, White Wolf Studio, every morning at 5am. I dive right into the project at hand. Whether sewing a quirky sculpture or painting a beloved pet, I get a few hours in of continuous work. I find my creative muse is fully awake before my inner critic begins to stir. 

I believe I'm afflicted by a condition I refer to as Multiple Muse Disorder. Which simply means I'm a life learner. I'm always struck by new ideas, new techniques or any inspiration that grabs me. I've learned to rein it in though and strive to create with combinations of techniques that keep my muses happy.
