About the Artist

Donna McGee

Dublin born artist Donna McGee  comes from a background in financial services. Since childhood, she has  had a passion for painting.  Having juggled to create a sense of balance with  family commitments and a busy work life, she opted  to pursue her love of art.  She  immersed herself fully in the art-world and set up a studio at her home.

She is largely self-taught and has developed a unique style, encompassing a diverse range of influences.

Donna loves to travel and is a regular visitor to the west coast of Ireland.  She strives to capture the restless elemental forces of the Irish landscape and to celebrate its timeless beauty in her work.  Her preferred medium is oils. She combines the use of palette knives which allow for the creation of rich textures in impasto style, resulting in a dynamic and raw energy.

Weather permitting, Donna paints outdoors (en plein air) and is a regular visitor to the annual international event in Wexford  Art in the Open.   This is  Europe’s largest open air painting festival.

Donna exhibits in selected galleries and group exhibitPainting sunflowers with Donna McGeeions including Art Source, Ireland’s premier Art Fair. Her work is represented in collections both in Ireland and abroad and  she has received a number of  international awards.

She is a member of Visual Arts Ireland and The Dublin Art Society

Her paintings can be viewed most Sundays in Merrion Square, Dublin.
