"I love to photograph the Southwest where I was born and raised, emphasizing the rich history of this area. Photographing the ghost towns and the old west brings that moment in time to life. I also love finding old photos, retouching, enlarging and bringing these images to life, enriching the history they portray.

I remember sneaking away with my mother's "Brownie" camera when I was very young. Life got busy, and I eventually pursued my photography career when my children left home by going back to college. Much of my hand colored work is self taught, having studied the masters in the old arts of retouching and hand painting of photographs. Hand tinting of daguerreotypes was the first effort to create "realism" of color in the early 1840's. Hand coloring of photographs declined by the 1950's with wide access to color film. Since 1970, a revival of the process was being used by artists/photographers for the aesthetic value.

I currently reside in Santa Fe, NM and I am a member of the Santa Fe Society of Artists showing near the historic Santa Fe plaza. I have sold my work at fine art festivals in Colorado, including Vail, where I was featured artist 2009; Kansas City, MO; Jackson Hole, WY and Sedona, AZ." -Becky Donatucci-
