Flax at Anchor Bay
Despite always having a love of art and achieving 89% in school certificate art, it never occured to Donna that she could become an artist, as a career. Leaving school and working in a bank for twenty years, it wasn't until 2004 that she discovered "what she wanted to be when she grew up". She has not looked back since.
She is now an established full-time artist living and working in Riverhead. Her artworks are easily recognized for their vibrant crisp images and bold colours. Oil paint is her medium of choice, using the transparent/opaque qualities this paint offers. Her paintings are made up of many layers, she usually has about 14 works on the go at any one time, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next. She uses only top quality products, artist quality paints and hand stretched canvases.
Donna is madly passionate about the outdoors, in particular, the ocean, and is always keen on an adventure. These activites often take her to destinations that transpire onto canvas. She has caught a marlin, dived the Poor Knights, been pig hunting on the Chatham Islands, done several parachute jumps and white water rafting trips. Road trips are big on her agenda..."New Zealand has so many beautiful places to paint, but I also love discovering old shacks, fishing boats and the like...there are history and stories surrounding these things that bring them to life."
Donna has paintings in private and corporate collections throughout New Zealand and worldwide, including Hong Kong, Canada, USA, The Netherlands, Australia, Guernsay Island and many more.
