Artist Bio

“It is only in the world of objects that we have time and space.”

T. S. Eliot.

Donna studied printmaking at Gray’s School of Art, and graduated from Robert Gordon University with a BA (Hons) in fine Art – Printmaking. Since then she has exhibited artwork in open exhibitions and solo shows and has completed commissioned work for businesses in Aberdeen City.
Donna won a Purchase Prize in 2008 and was later commissioned by Grampian Hospitals Art Trust to make site-specific work for a reminiscence room in Aberdeen’s Royal Cornhill Hospital. Since 2008, Donna has been working as an Artist for the Artroom project at Roxburghe House. Donna is currently based out of Newtonhill, just south of Aberdeen. Her practice is multi-disciplinary and focuses mainly on the embedded emotions and memories in found and rediscovered objects and photographs.
