Donna Maloney is a multi-talented artist who has chosen in the past to mostly work in watercolour. This is a medium she has excelled in and has received many awards for her efforts in this field. Because Donna loves to experiment and try different ideas, the natural progression of using mixed mediums including her new love alcohol inks, is taking her in an exciting new direction . Having experimented many ways of using this beautiful and unpredictable medium she has finally been able put her own touch into her developing style. Donna is a lover of all things natural, beautiful and peaceful, so she derives much pleasure from being able to share her paintings with the world.


I studied Fine Arts at TAFE in Townsville. Then for the next 12 months I worked at developing my own style, starting in acrylics then moving onto watercolours. Before starting a painting, I start an art journal with printed photos of the subject and I have fun experimenting with colour, different mediums and techniques.
