Donna paints in the genre of landscape, yet "landscapes" is too simple a description for her paintings. Her work is modern in composition; the horizon determines the mood and narrative that will develop. With the swirling of brushwork and layering of glazes, she creates her signature style of softness and a painting that glows from within.
In each landscape, Donna paints skies that are both ethereal and realistic. As a child, she remembers watching the sky with its changing cloud formations. Each cloud promised a transformation into a different children’s fantasy. Even more importantly, clouds became for Donna the beginning elements of abstraction.
