Amy Donaldson creates landscape paintings in a personal style that combines visual and visceral elements of her experiences from life. Engaging with the world around her gives Donaldson a deeply personal feeling for humanity which accounts for the range and rich texture of her work. She has been inspired through her faith and travels from places like the devastated, earthquake ravaged Haiti to Berlin, Chicago and New York. Her eclectic taste in music is also reflected as dynamic, rhythmic patterns and gestural marks in her paintings. Evident in each restless, vibrant composition is Donaldson’s strong sense of color and feeling for space and light which is achieved by her fusion of crushed, powdered natural pigments with oil paints that are applied in a freely expressive manner.
