Getting to know Donna Berry

Favorite art work?

I have enjoyed creating so many pieces over the years but one of my favorites is a  recent work of a female Mallard duck. Taking the time to watch and photograph her as she waddled around the parking lot at Lily Lake. Then resting close to my car hoping to be fed. When I began creating the painting I was already connected to the cute little duck and this made producing it much more enjoyable.

 

Real life situation that inspired me?

This would have to be the implosion of the General Hospital in 1995. After this event I produced a series of surreal paintings because like many people is this area I was connected to the old building for I was born there as well as my children. It was a massive structure with atmosphere of healing. I attempted to duplicate this feeling in my surreal paintings.

What is my dream project?

I live my dream each time I pick up a brush and and apply paint to canvas.

What do I like most doing?

Going out on a sunny day when the shadows are long and search for inspirational sites along the beautiful Bay of Fundy.

How has my art practice changed over the year?

I feel today I am less distracted by life’s commitments and more focused on creating paintings. I work daily to achieve this. My favorite time of day to work is late afternoon and early evening leaving the morning for more physical activities such as going to the gym or working around my home.
