Artistic Infusion Program

Donna Weaver

Designer

Donna Weaver studied sculpting, painting and print-making at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, graduating with a fine arts degree in 1966. A native of northern Kentucky, she worked for several of the area's toy companies, including Kenner Toys and Hasbro, sculpting action figures and other toys. From 2000 until her retirement in 2006, she served as a sculptor-engraver at the United States Mint at Philadelphia. While at the United States Mint, Ms. Weaver designed and or sculpted over forty coins or medals. She has revived the art of miniature bas-relief wax portraiture, which was popular in the U.S. between 1750 and 1840. Named one of Early American Life magazine's best artists, Ms. Weaver's wax portraits have been judged to be of museum quality. She divides her time between sculpting wax portraits, gallery exhibits and commissioned work and participating in living history events and juried shows in several states.
