Donna-Fay's love of drawing, painting, and art has been a life long
passion and journey. Now working from her own studio on Saturna Island,
her images of dancers, landscapes, animals, and multicultural symbols,
have exploded into colourful fabric multimedia collages. The work
erupts with movement, joy, originality, and harmony with nature.
Donna's multimedia approach uses a variety of fabrics combined
with drawing, painting, batik, and textile dyeing. The delicate cutting
of material and eye to detail enhance the beauty and richness of
textures and patterns. Many of the pieces are texturally enhanced
with machine embroidery creating a visual and tactile richness.
Donna's current works stem from her previous collection
of intaglio prints collectively called "Dreamscapes", also
available in the gallery. These intaglio prints use a variety of
etching techniques such as hard ground, soft ground, aquatint, two
colour plates, and viscosity printing.
