Donna G. Davis, Art Therapist

Donna G. Davis

Art Therapist


My experience ranges from working with clients with special education, dementia and bi-polar disorders, and with people with physical handicaps such as stroke victims, to children and the general population. My intention is always to use art as a creative outlet for expression for people who may not have a voice or a way to otherwise express the beauty in their souls.
