An "explosion of color and detail" are words used to describe a painting by Donna Page. A native of Dallas, TX. She graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. As a sculpture and painting major and as the daughter of an architect, dimension and depth have always been an important element in her pieces.
Amazed by the incredible intricacies in architectural delineation, Page landed a job in the 80's with an internationally known architectural illustration firm. The artist learned all she could about the theories of color, perspective, and shadow. After working as a freelance architectural illustrator for 20 years, Donna now enjoys applying the elements of "photo realism" to her own artistic interpretations. By taking a single flower portrayed in a "bee's eye view" the audience sees an everyday object with an entirely new perspective.
Donna works in pastel, gouache, watercolor, acrylic, and water soluble oils. The scale of her paintings range from very large to her small works series. She continues to attend various workshops to further her studies.
