Current Artist: 9 February – 5 April
Raised and educated in Saskatchewan, Donna’s teaching, her husband’s career and family travels have offered this artist inspiration and creative opportunities from the prairies to Ottawa, from the Caribbean to the suburbs and from Paris to Montreal.
Inspired by the forms and structures of Modigliani and encouraged by Van Gogh’s daring with colour, her work presents an emotional impact that challenges the viewer to share the experience. Extensive studies in figurative expressionism and especially the face and portraiture find unique expression in her work.
Donna is represented by Gallery Perth in Perth, Ontario and for the last few years exhibits regularly in juried shows such as The Prince Edward County Studio Tour, The Rideau Valley Art Festival, The New Art Festival in Ottawa and The Ottawa Art Expo.
Currently living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Donna paints daily in her upstairs studio, shows her work in her home gallery, The Drawing Room and teaches workshops in the lower floor studio 35 Below.
