Biography

Born to a third generation Alberta Ranching family, Donna Wilson has a strong affinity for the people and animals that live and work in this environment. She has continued to work with cattle and horses throughout her entire life, and spends a great deal of time enjoying the native wildlife that lives in the area. Most of the subjects of her sculptures are people and animals that are a part of her everyday life and she accurately depicts the individual characters of each. She and her husband live and work on the family ranch near Chain Lakes, Alberta where they have an outfitting business as well.

"I was one of those fortunate few who was born to a family who truly respected artists. My brothers are poets and musicians, artists in every way, but I only have an aptitude for drawing. The environment in which we were raised was rich with imagery and stories. Our folks were artists. Our mom, Helen Wilson, was a beautiful painter, with countless numbers of her creations gracing the homes of friends and collectors. Our Dad, Stan Wilson, played the harmonica and guitar and wrote eloquently for the local papers. His words traveled internationally as he used his creative skills to focus on building a stronger industry for beef producers."

"My earliest memories have everything to do with the beauty and art around me, created by the passionate people who lived and shared their world, their work and their art. Sculpting for me is drawing all 4 sides of my subject. I love to express my experiences and share my world of ranching and wildlife with you."

While living and working close to nature and on the land, she has developed a deep appreciation for the people and animals in her environment. She is careful and observant in the detail of each individual making sculptures that are not only life like but accurate. Those persons who enjoy western art will like this artist’s depictions of the characters that live and work in an increasingly threatened way of life.
