Donna Mabrey began her career working as an apprentice for a successful Interior Designer in Atlanta, Georgia. Soon she was proficient in applying her blossoming decorative art skills to the interior design industry. In a short time, Donna was established as a sought after decorative artist in greater Atlanta. Upon her completion of two historic Bed and Breakfast Inns in Highlands, North Carolina, her name became synonymous with excellence.
Being passionate about her work, Donna continues to upgrade her skills by taking classes throughout the United States offered by the Stencilers Artisan League, Inc. (SALI), as well as other various workshops around the country. She has also been invited by SALI, for the last 10 years, to be an instructor in her field of expertise.
After many years of dedication to her craft, she has perfected her own unique style and application principles. Never forgetting the basics, she has developed a work smarter, not harder technique. Thus was born her Faux Finish and Business Workshop that is currently available.
She has received many rave reviews from those attending. As an experienced muralist wrote, "I would recommend this class to other artists... this workshop was worth the effort." A beginner student writes, "I believe you gave me the techniques and technical knowledge to make a living." The general consensus, as one student says, "I could not be more pleased." She is now offering various specialized workshops.
