Donna Turgeon

Welcome to my artwork. Not only am I an award-winning artist but a scientist with 30+ years experience as a biological oceanographer, marine ecologist and diver. You can have my work "your way" from fine art prints on paper, canvas, acrylic, or metal to framed originals on your wall.

A published scientific illustrator and author with 50 science journal articles and books, my in-depth knowledge of animal biology  and love of nature has deeply influenced not only what subjects I choose to paint but how I render them. 
With a passion for detail, I begin each of my photo-realistic paintings with a pencil sketch of the subject(s), establish a loose background, then "build my story" with fine layers of paint to achieve greater intensity of color and an overall impression of 3-dimension. 

I have created over 300 original paintings in watercolor, acrylic, pastel, and oil; over 40 are still available for sale. I now have about 150 different prints available for purchase. 

To see the rest my artwork and purchase an open edition print on any substrate in any size you want, visit Instead if you prefer a limited edition print and are in the DC Metropolitan area, come to the ART a la Carte Gallery, 310 Mill Street, Occoquan VA see my work in person and browse that of our other artists.
