Donna Blakey, Dover Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement An attraction to art and the inclination to capture visual images has always been a constant in my life. I made the leap from being an admirer and consumer of art to a creator of art. I discovered that maturing in life has been the springboard for me to mature in my creative abilities. I have progressed to creating captivating images painted mostly in acrylic on canvas. As a self- taught artist I find that I am attracted to figures and faces. My work often depicts locations were people of color are abundant. I like to tell their stories in my paintings reflecting the vibrancy of the people, my people. The vivid colors of their surroundings is very much a part of the experience. As you view my work I invite you to share in that experience as well.
