Portrait of Donna S. Spangler

Donna Selfridge Spangler has lived most of her life surrounded by the beauty of the central Pennsylvania mountains and the heritage of the Pennsylvania Germans. It is easy to understand why the traditional fraktur designs flowers, birds, vines, and hearts as well as the flowing letters of calligraphy have become so much a part of her life and art.

She became interested in the historical art of Fraktur as a hands-on the way to blend her two core interests—art and history. She loves the intricate patterns of the traditional designs and uses her inks and pens, watercolors and brushes to satisfy her need to draw and paint in a disciplined manner. She sees a deeper meaning in her art—to inform and inspire, to record family events, and to connect the generations.

Spangler has enjoyed connecting today’s families with the past by creating lasting heirlooms of family trees, birth and wedding fraktur, and inspirational verses that are cherished by people worldwide. She has maintained her Master Artisan status in the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen since 1989. She has also been recognized multiple times in the Directory of Traditional American Crafts.
