Amy Donahue Member Since August 2013 Artist Statement “Everywhere I travel scenes beg to be painted. The light and the vivid color captivate me. Of course God creates the most vibrant and dynamic colors and patterns–even so, I enjoy paying homage to His designs in rendering 2D versions of what I’ve seen. I love the details, the contrasts in lights and dark, the vibrancy of this world. The heavens truly tell the glory of God (Psalm 19:1) much more effectually than my paint. They are a marvelous mystery, but still I am constantly compelled to capture them on canvas.”
Amy studied at VCU’s School of the Arts, receiving her BA in Communication Arts. Her award-winning work has been displayed in New York City as well as venues in Richmond. She now lives in Midlothian with her husband, Mark, and dog, Theo. She paints mostly in oils both on location and in her home studio.
