Dona D. Barnett:
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
I have a new series in progress of hand sewn print composites (center column). Some of the pieces in the series will be in the Asheville Printmakers group show at Piedmont Arts in Martinsville, VA from October 22, 2021 to January 8, 2022.
Since April, 2020, I temporarily make face masks especially for bearded men based on beard length: Restrained, Majestic and Voluminous (as well as Big&Tall and Standard sizes).
So what do I do with the fabric scraps? Make Rag Doll Zombies, of course...

to contact me:
October 11, 2021 marks 6 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 continues to help me to process grief. Above I have created a link to the work "New Reality". My hope is that these pieces comfort those who are hurting when words fail.
