About the artist


Largely self-taught Donna has developed a unique style. She encompasses a diverse range of influences arising out of her love of travel, not least, the spectacular coastlines of Ireland.  Observing and capturing the restless elemental forces of this landscape and celebrating its timeless beauty is central to her work.  Continuing her love of learning, she has recently completed a Postgraduate course at Trinity College Dublin, in Creative & Cultural Entrepreneurship.

She is drawn to the allure of stormy skies, vibrant sunsets and observing the transformative effects of the ever-changing light.  It creates an emotional response  and a spiritual connection within the wonder of nature.

Weather permitting, she paints outdoors (plein air) and  likes to visit Europe’s largest annual open air painting festival in Wexford  Art in the Open.

Donna works in oils and her paintings have an ethereal feel, most evident in her abstract work. Sometimes she incorporates surrealist elements to create greater mood and atmosphere, thereby, her interpretation of the subject matter is transformed rather than merely recorded. The use of palette knives allow for the creation of rich, tactile texture resulting in a dynamic and raw energy.

With  successful Dublin solo shows, she participates in a number of other group exhibitions throughout Ireland including Ireland’s premier Arts Fair, Art Source  where she had enjoyed great success.  She ships worldwide and her paintings can be found in many collections both in Ireland and across the world.   She is the recipient of a number of  international awards.

Donna is a member of Visual Arts Ireland , Merrion Arts Association and The Dublin Art Society.
