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. As an avid traveler, my paintings often depict locations were people of color are abundant. Largely self taught, I love creating colorful, captivating images painted mostly in acrylic on canvas. I strive to tell stories in my paintings, reflecting the vibrancy of the people and their life's daily events, in one moment of time.
