I'm Dona D. Barnett and so glad you came to my website! I do printmaking and drawing both contemporary and traditional.
My drawing professor once told me that my work is about whispers. I think that’s an apt description. If you'd like to read more, here's a link
These blockprints of vegetables were intense to make. Each one has multiple blocks cut and many layers of color. They provided me with a challenging puzzle to work last Spring. Each one is about 4" x 6". You can find out more by clicking on the "printmaking and drawing" link on the right.
I moved my lovely Ettan press back to my home studio and I have absolutely no shows coming up until November 2019! It has been an unusually hard 6 months so I think a hiatus is in order.
to contact me:
October 11, 2018 marks 3 years since we lost our gentle son to suicide. Most of the art I made in the years before his death expressed my prayers for Zach. After his death, making art helped to process grief. Above I have created a link to that body of work "New Reality". My hope is that these pieces comfort those who are hurting when words fail.
