Meet The Artist
Hi, my name is Donna Dolby, and I have been teaching art since 2004 at Northern Valley Regional High School in Old Tappan, NJ.
For nearly 20 years I have painted custom murals, face painted at parties, created original acrylic and oil paintings, designed and created theatrical costumes and made custom personalized gifts. I also create custom logos for new or established businesses, give private art lessons, and I am looking forward to creating a new body of work for exhibition soon!
I also have 14 years of costume and makeup design experience for our tremendous musical theater program at NVOT HS, most recently winning the 2017 NJ Metro award for costume design for our production of Tarzan. I also have costumed shows for Ridgewood high school's New Players Theater co.
In addition I am a faculty member of The Art School at Old Church in Demarest, NJ.
I hold my BFA from Montclair State University and my MFA from Christ Church University in Canterbury, England UK. Art has always been a passion for me and I believe that anyone can create something to be proud of with the right guidance ad inspiration. I also believe that hand painted work in the home , business, or on stage is much more exciting than stickers on a wall and should be affordable and well done. I aim to bring my hand painted work to anyone who wants to experience having original art in their life in many facets.
If you have a creative need I would love to help you fulfill it!
Contact me and we can discuss how Dolby Art & Design can help you with your project today.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
