Donna Carrick – Artist
I am very fortunate to be inspired by two wonderful women, my mother and my mother in law. They were both painters and I saw the deep satisfaction it brought to their lives. Their spirits are with me as I paint.
I work quickly in my studio from my photographs and sketches to get the composition down. I like to work large, using layers of oil to see the form emerge. I look to find the rhythm and harmony in my subjects. The excitement is in the juxtaposition of rich vibrant color. Often the work spills over to multiple panels.
I really enjoy painting and always hope to bring that pleasure to the viewer.
