Donna Marie Siegel '14

For Donna Marie Siegel ’14, the Liz Aplin Art Trip to the tiny province of Cadiz, Spain the summer before her junior year was transformational.

“The most influential person I met on the Liz Aplin to Spain was my instructor, (professional artist) Daud Akhriev. By the time the trip was over, I had gained confidence in my painting abilities and making a living as an artist. Because of Daud’s encouragement and affinity for art, I have gained a new hope that I can do and be whatever I want to be.”
