    Season 3 | Episode #13 with Artist, Mother and Lupus Advocate, Donna Jordan

    Season 3 | Episode #13 with Artist, Mother and Lupus Advocate, Donna Jordan

    Season THREE Episode THIRTEEN of the Your Story Our Fight® podcast welcomes Donna Jordan. Born in the vibrant city of Newark, NJ in 1956, Donna emerged as an artist nurtured by the rich tapestry of culture and creativity surrounding her. From an early age, her parents encouraged her artistic freedom, leading her to immerse herself in every art program Newark had to offer.
    Donna's journey began with humble yet impactful beginnings, as she adorned church walls with thematic murals and painted holiday scenes on local storefronts, igniting a passion for visual storytelling. High school beckoned her to the prestigious Arts High, the first visual and performing arts institution in the nation, where she honed her craft in painting, photography, and design. Venturing further, she pursued formal training at the Philadelphia College of Art, delving deep into the realm of abstract expressionism, a genre that resonated with her soul. Philadelphia became her canvas, where she showcased her work in exhibitions and contributed to urban revitalization through mural commissions. California's allure drew Donna westward, where she immersed herself in the vibrant artist community while honing her skills as a designer and production manager. In 1984, serendipity intervened as she met her husband Michael, ushering in a new chapter of family and creativity. Several years later she was diagnosed with Lupus, which changed her life and her family's life forever. Amidst the joys of parenthood and the challenges of living with Lupus, Donna's art became not only her refuge but also a catalyst for collaboration. Establishing the Jordan Design Network allowed her to transcend physical limitations and unite with fellow artists in collective expression. Today, as Donna continues her artistic journey in the embrace of her beloved family and the ever-inspiring landscapes of New Jersey, she invites you to join her on a podcast where we explore the resilience of the human spirit and the transformative power of art.
