“I take numerous photographs and then painstakingly search to find the one that captures my interest. This is true whether I’m painting flowers or people – to me they are all ‘Portraits’. My floral paintings are influenced by the late Georgia O’keefe. The close-up image brings the viewer a dramatic perspective that evokes an emotional response. My people portraits emulate the play of lights and shadows reminiscent of the old masters like Caravaggio.”
Donna is happy to accept commissions.
