Ashlyn Donaldson, daughter of Michael and Pamela Donaldson, is a Henry County 4-H’er in the ninth grade. Art is her passion, and she is inspired by pop art because of its bold colors, lines, and use of depth and perception.
For the fourth consecutive year, Ashlyn’s work was recently selected as the winning entry in the Georgia 4-H Foundation Holiday Card Contest. Additionally, for the second time Ashlyn was invited to create separate designs for a birthday card as well as a graduation card from the 4-H Foundation.
In early fall 2016, Ashlyn entered a design for consideration to be included in National 4-H Council’s Youth Artwork Calendar. Her art was selected and will appear in the calendar for the month of January 2017.
In addition, her artwork was selected to be presented as a gift to a retiring member of National 4-H Council’s Board of Trustees.
Ashlyn serves as a member of the Henry County 4-H Council. She has also competed in Cotton Boll Consumer Judging, Forestry Judging, and Poultry Judging several times. At District Project Achievement she has placed 1st in the Beef, Food for Health and Sport, and Forest Resources and Wood Science categories.
Ashlyn aspires to pursue a career in veterinary pathology, but will continue to express herself through her artistic abilities.
Congratulations to Ashlyn on the recognition of her outstanding artwork.
