Donna Adams

Donna M. Adams, who resides in High River Alberta, grew up in Edmonton AB. Donna creates landscape, floral and abstract, textured paintings that allow viewers to be intimately connected to her artwork. Among the most positive reactions to Donnas work by many viewers has been how deeply her work resonates with them, at a very personal level. Acrylics and oils are Donnas mediums of choice. She specializes in creating texture by building thick layers with a variety of tools and materials on all surfaces large and small. Glazes are applied that enrich the depth of colors.

As an inspired and astute observer of nature, Donna is influenced by light and color. Her unique style creates an atmosphere that draws the viewer into the central depth and flow of her art. Donna Adams work is found in private and commercial collections throughout Canada, and US

Artists Statement

"Imagine" - was chosen as the theme of my collection to inspire the imagination. My "goal" as an artist is to allow inspired images to come alive on canvas, where viewers are free to Imagine and be inspired by the image created. I work in all types media. Currently, acrylics and oils are my preference. Both work across large surfaces and when manipulated, with just the right tools, achieve a texture that reflects depth, dimension and movement. For surfaces I use Canvas, Wood canvas, Metal, rice paper, water colour paper and more

Since I was always drawing "Dumbo" the Elephant on my school books and in art classes, It was felt by family & teachers, that I showed great promise as an artist. My artistic journey truly began as a commercial artist, responsible for creating a variety of business, advertising, and promotional materials. Home design, computer web page and graphic design were natural evolutions in my career in Real Estate. While raising my family and working full time as a successful realtor in Sherwood Park and Edmonton Alberta, I established myself as an artist with a unique and natural style.

Many artists have encouraged me to take risks and to let my images flow onto the canvas. Their acceptance and support have been a motivating force behind the marketing and launching of my shows.

My published works include: the cover of the "Canadian Rural Medical Journal" (Oct. 2010); distributed across the country in every Doctors Office across the country. "Avenue Magazine"; "Reno Magazine"; and Edmonton "Home Magazine". My art work also appeared as background for 3 different morning shows for Global News Edmonton for "Kohon Design", The High River Times Description of my work by Jane Wilson.

images and a reverence for realism.
