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
My figure studies have served me well in a way I didn't expect. Since April, 2020, I have been making face masks especially for bearded men! I have an Etsy shop where you can see the 5 different sizes I make, three of them based on beard length: Restrained, Majestic and Voluminous. I also make a Big&Tall size and a Standard size.
Out of the Ashes was my first solo show in a very long time. It was at Trackside Studios from September 1st to September 30th, 2019. I have included my statement in a blog post which you can read from this link.
I'm sorry that my gallery pages are too complicated!
I know that not everyone knows a collagraph from a composite so I will soon be rearranging all my pictures into themes or subjects. Until then, enjoy what you discover and ask me questions if you have them!

October 11, 2020 marks 5 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.
