I began teaching Elementary Art in 1987, after a 13 year retail career in fine jewelry. I came to Orchard Park Elementary in the year 2000. I attended Herron School of Art, and graduated with an Art Education degree from Indiana University and Masters degree from Indiana Wesleyan. My husband and I have 4 children between us, 3 grand daughters and 1 grandson. Our 2 sons both live and work in Denver, Colorado, and our daughter and other son live in Indy. My husband and I love to travel in the U.S. and Europe. In my spare time, I play lots of competitive tennis; I also play golf, walk and paint in watercolors as well as teach at The Art Studio of Carmel. My father, Crawford Donnelly, was a well know Indiana oil & watercolor artist.
