Donna’s current artistic expression uses common plastic bags destined for landfill. The artfully transformed bags become richly layered abstracts, undergoing metamorphosis by fire (well almost; they are melted with an iron between sheets of parchment paper). The newly formed compound is cut, fused by heat again and again until the final image emerges. The unpredictable process results in an amalgamation of vibrant color, layered texture, and visual story.
A collector by nature, found objects often make their way into her art. She has a keen ability to twist a tale using mundane objects and broken bits.
“I have a passion for surface design, collage, painting, mixed media, collage and a driving desire to constantly try new things.”
A graduate of MassArt, she currently resides in Hull, MA. where she helped orchestrate the launch of Gallery Nantasket.
She’s a member of Hull Artists, South Shore Art Center, Scituate Art Association and North River Arts.
