Come on in. My name is Donna Harriman Murillo. I'm a mother of two wonderful sons and a very devoted wife. For over 30 years I have been working in all kinds of art from photography to 3D illustration. My favorite gandra is fantasy and sci-fiction. Currently, all my designs are created in 3D using several different programs. The models are then rendered and finished up in Photoshop.
Please, kick back and enjoy browsing through my portfolio.
