Donna Brown has painted since the 1970s but began her full-time career over 20 years ago when she moved to Kingston. Contemporary portraits and oil paints were her favourites. Then, for many years, she used acrylic paint, enjoying the product for its speed of drying and flexibility for changes. She is now painting on gold leaf paper and rice paper, using Japanese mineral paints, Sumi ink, acrylic, or oil and cold wax. She feels extremely fortunate to be able to paint whatever inspires her at the time, using whatever materials seem appropriate
She finds the variety of artist materials and inﬁnite ways to use them fascinating, which keeps the creative process challenging and interesting.
Donna believes that painting often expresses that which cannot be conveyed through words. She hopes to communicate and share her vision and passion with the viewer.
