Artist Donna Schaffer gains her inspirations from her dives in chilly Northern California waters. Striking warms and subdues reds contrast against the rich blue-greens that typify this region of spectular California diving. Striving for realistic hues and tones in her work Donna states, "I am endeavoring to recreate the images, colors, and shadows of the undersea world as I've seen it."The resulting paintings are which divers can easily identify and be inspired by.

Donna has been a scuba diver since 1976, For 23 years, art has been a part of her life. Since 2001 she has been creating marine life paintings in the oil medium.
