Donna Dewberry is a self-taught artist whose mother encouraged crafting. The One Stroke Painting method was developed when Donna had to fill an order for several thousand pieces of painted tinware. She enlisted the help of family and friends, taught them to paint and the rest is history.
Plaid discovered Donna at a craft show and partnered with her to publish books and Reusable Teaching Guides. The line quickly expanded with tools, brushes, videos and kits.
Donna's true passion is teaching. She developed an education program to teach people how to paint and how to teach others. To date there are more than 6,000 Certified One Stroke Instructors worldwide in more than 15 countries.
Donna has created more than 100 books and videos, has her own show on PBS, and regularly appears on the Home Shopping Network.
Donna lives with her soul-mate/husband Marc in Clermont, FL. They have six surviving children and soon to be 11 grandchildren.
