Donna Blakey, Dover Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement An attraction to arts as a child and the inclination towards visual images has been a constant in my life. Maturing in life has been the springboard for maturing in my creative abilities. I made the leap from being an admirer of art to a creator of art. As an avid traveler my work often depicts locations were people of color are abundant. Largely self taught, I love creating colorful, captivating images painted mostly in acrylic on canvas. I tell stories in my paintings, reflecting the vibrancy of the people and their life's daily events, in one moment of time.
