Born and raised in Western New York.

BFA from SUNY College at Fredonia.

Donna and her husband live near Rochester, New York.

Much to her surprise, they have managed to raise three amazingly wonderful young adults. 

Co-founded a company specializing in personalized children's books.

Her illustrations have appeared on various products; including but not limited to: stickers, gift bags, gift tags, window clings, classroom bulletin board materials, eight mass-market board books and four picture books.

She will probably never own the domain donnafarrell.com and will forever be known as donna.doodles.
