About this Wife & Husband Team

Monica, The Jewelry Artist
After growing up in a small, south Alabama town, I earned a bachelor's degree in Studio Art and a master’s degree in Counseling.  I enjoyed 15 exhilarating years in the nonprofit sector as a therapist, child advocate and management in the Mid-Atlantic states.  When my husband, Greg (pictured below), retired from his first career, we had the opportunity to move back to Alabama where I am enjoying the privilege of watching my nieces and nephew grow.  I used this relocation as a chance to follow my creative passions and Monica Donohoe Jewelry was born. When I'm not in the jewelry studio I paint and draw.  I’m drawn to intense lights and shadows, captured moments, exaggerations of simple things and the unexpected. 

Greg, The Stamp Artist
After working in a federal prison for 23 years, I retired in 2009 and moved from West Virginia to Birmingham, Alabama.  Here I began a new career in Safety & Compliance in the corporate offices of a large, private contract, security company.  In 2016, I traveled to Branson, MO for training to learn the art of stamp making from Ryan Linger.  The hands on training provided me with basic metalsmithing skills necessary to make stamping tools from annealed steel and I've been honing my skills since.
