Welcome to the artwork of Donna Howard!
I imagine myself a storyteller more than anything. The painted stories are mine, but the universal emotional nature of humans, may allow them to see their own story inside. I spent 15 years in an office cube so I’m conscious of the irony the concentric square patterns in my work create. But the multidimensionality could make it universally appealing to anyone who ever felt stuck. My art explores life changing decision-making, addiction and the quest to find the pieces of life worthy of exploring further. I’m aware of the Quirkiness in my work. Without the whimsy the paintings wouldn’t make MY artistic statement; the laughter is the best part of the journey. I’m the Mad Hatter at my very own tea party, opening people up to the absurd and encouraging them to thoroughly enjoy it.
