Donna lives and works in Nottingham. Her starting point is often with handwritten letters, poems, stories and thoughts of the past, the present and of the future. Using these to create installations, artists books, wall pieces. Quite often the concept dictates what the work will become.
Donna combines processes and materials that incorporate ethereal and translucent qualities such as machine made lace which suggest the notion of absence and presence, conversations spoken and forgotten and, White on White where stories can be read (or not). Stitched thread onto acrylic sheets create enigmatic cityscapes and figurative works.
Donna’s art intends to capture special moments and reflections of conversations which are personal and intimate; about journeys and people. Objects that hold special meaning and experiences: ramblings of opinions and life's wonders and annoyances, and my love/hate relationship with texting and the time between messages being sent and received are used as inspiration.
