About

Donna Louise Fletcher is an Abstract Expressionist painter working from her home studio on the Central Coast of NSW. Donna studied at The University of Newcastle 2005 – 2008 and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art.

It was during these academic years that her skill of intuitive mark making emerged and she has spent the past decade experimenting, developing and fine tuning her technique. Her acrylic paintings bring a sense of energy to any space.

Donna has exhibited frequently in both solo and group exhibitions in New South Wales and Victoria since 2006 and in 2018 in London at the exclusive La Galleria, Pall Mall.
Her work has been selected and awarded for exhibitions and art prizes which include;
Finalist: Lethbridge Art Prize 2018
First Prize: Non-Indigenous category of the Reconciliation Art Awards, Gosford Regional Gallery, 2010

Influences

Donna's practice is influenced by the expressionist and colour field painters who dared to dream, take risks and break artistic rules. Nature and natural phenomenon along with the colours of the Australian landscape intrigue her and are often used as reference points for developing an idea for a body of work.
