Donald Clegg is a professional artist residing in Spokane, Washington. He began painting at 23, ignoring the fact that he had no ability whatsoever. He's now been at it for half his life, and somewhere along the way, acquired the skills that people call "talent." Except for a twice-a-week class, repeated several times, Don is self-taught. He taught regularly at local art schools for a decade and now teaches occasional workshops.
Don has participated in over 125 juried and invitational shows, including many national exhibitions such as the Hilton Head Art League, Watercolor USA, the Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors, and the Northwest Watercolor Society. He is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society. His work has appeared in several magazines, including features in The Artist's Magazine, Watercolor Magic, and Southwest Art Magazine.
In addition to his painting, Don is a long time organic gardener and wields a deft brush in the kitchen. He's also a member of the Spokesman-Review's Reader Food Panel, and reviews a variety of food products for his local newspaper. He lives with his wife, Kat, and two spoiled cats.
