ABOUT THE ARTIST: Donnamarie's ties to the Phillies extend back to her great uncle, who helped build Connie Mack Stadium. Born into an artistic family (her grandparents were clothing designers and mother and uncle sang opera), Donnamarie carries on a family tradition of being involved in the arts. She attended the University of the Arts, winning many awards and participating in a variety of exhibitions. Most notably: one of her 3D paintings of a golden-headed Tamarin Lion was selected to raise money for the Philadelphia Zoo primate house when it burned down. She also received a Bronze Award in an international competition in New York. Her work was also placed in various private collections and exhibitions.
Donnamarie's career path took a turn while studying in England, where she helped a woman in an abusive relationship. This experience compelled her to become a lawyer to defend abused women and children. She attended Widener School of Law and currently represents children and adults with special needs.
Donnamarie is also involved with helping to start The Peace Valley Holistic Center, a 501c3 non-profit soon to be a national prototype focusing on autism. But despite all she has been involved with, Donnamarie's art remains a passion:"Like true love, having the heart of an artist is permanent, it never leaves you.
