International artist Amy Donaldson creates abstract landscape paintings combining crushed or powdered natural pigments with oil paint. She executes her paintings with tools other than traditional brushes, attacking the canvas in an additive and subtractive process—much like a sculptor—to achieve a dynamic and vibrant surface. Her intuitive response to music combined with her strong sense of color as well as feeling for space and light within the composition result in a body of work with a signature style embodying a sense of immediacy and freshness. Color and texture are important to her to stimulate the senses in a positive way, leaving the viewer with feelings of hope and compassion.
A native of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Amy studied Fine Art at the University of North Florida. She has exhibited internationally from London to Paris, New York, Art Basel Miami, National Juried Exhibitions, and museum shows. Her works are in numerous private and public collections.
Amy currently lives and works in Chicago, IL.
