About Donna

My acrylic paintings, many in large format, elicit a personal response from each observer. I try not to paint ‘scenes’, but to create a mood or memory, a vignette, that enables everyone to recall the beautiful landscapes that surround them personally. Composition is important to me, as is colour and pattern. My paintings can be seen as more than landscapes and enter into the realm of the abstract, appealing to a larger audience and I hope increasing their impact. I strongly believe in extending the colour palette beyond the true spectrum to achieve a higher aesthetic response.
