From the day she was able to grasp a pencil, Dona has had a love for art. After graduating from California State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art, Gelsinger’s first major commission was to paint the Stations of the Cross for St. Denis Church in Diamond Bar, Calif. This project, the creation of 14 near life-size paintings, consumed her artistic energies for nearly two years and won her widespread acclaim.
Early in the 1990s, Dona worked with Thomas Kinkade publisher, Lightpost Publishing to expose her artwork to the retail community. As demand for Dona’s artwork began to grow our family decided it was time to form our own business and pour all of our efforts into promoting the Dona Gelsinger brand. In 1994, Brian and Dona founded Little Angel Publishing and began offering Dona’s artwork on limited edition prints.
