AMY DONALDSON

Joyful.  Fresh.  Uplifting.  Amy Donaldson’s paintings are a contemporary twist on Impressionism.  Painting in a free and expressive manner, Donaldson often works with tools instead of brushes. Combining oil paint with crushed shrimp shell or gold metallic and natural pigments, she applies her materials directly on to the canvas, sometimes even by hand, imbuing lush layers and rich texture to her work. Paint and pigment are repeatedly added and then scraped off, creating a unique patina and irregular depth to the work.  There is an expansive feeling of space mixed with color and light in her composition that inspires both a calm yet encouraging feeling from her work. Whether with muted greys or brighter hues, the overall effect is calming and delightful.  Donaldson’s paintings are often commissioned by hospitals and public spaces for the positive feeling they exude.  She affirms “every piece holds a presence in a pursuit to inspire the heart…”

“Through my travels, I really fell in love with the organic feel of old rustic walls, of graffiti. And I try to fuse that together with the Impressionism, so when you see my work in person, it has this luminous, textural, gritty feel to it.”
