Donna Weaver

Wax is one of the earliest known mediums for portraiture.  Miniature wax portraits executed in bas-relief were exceedingly popular from the mid 18th century until the introduction and popularization of photography in the 1840’s

Ms. Weaver and her husband revived the art of miniature bas-relief wax portraiture, which was popular in the United States between 1750 and 1840. Named one of Early American Life Magazine's best artisans, her wax portraits have been judged to be of museum quality.  Donna divides her time between sculpting the wax portraits, gallery exhibits, commissioned work and participating in living history events from Virginia to Illinois
