About Donna McGee

 
 
  • Biography
    The Irish landscape is a constant source of inspiration. I aim to capture the essence of this timeless beauty, both in traditional and abstract form - inviting others to see the world through my eyes and stimulating a sense of well-being and harmony.

    I work mainly in oils because I love the  vibrancy, fluidity and depth of colour that can be achieved.  I also use 
    palette knives to create rich textures in impasto style which  result  in a dynamic  raw energy.

    I am lucky enough to live near the coast and the foothills of the Dublin mountains. Enjoying hill-walking through the countryside,  camera at the ready, there is always an interesting vista to capture and work up later in my studio.    Weather permitting, I like to paint outdoors (en plein air).  This creates a sense of immediacy to capture the changing light and a refreshing looseness occurs.  I am a regular visitor to the annual international event in Wexford  Art in the Open. This is Europe’s largest open air painting festival

    Painting is food for my soul!
