I'm Donna, but my friends call me Spidie.

I got that nickname from Michael because of the way I flit from project to project like a WATER SPIDER. 

I am an observational painter of objects, that have been discarded. Old industry, machines, and tools attract me because of their visual interest, but also because of their stories. Each tool or broken object was originally used to carry out a task or an idea by someone. I feel connected with that story when I take the time to paint or draw.
My studio is on the mezzanine at Squirrel Haus Arts.
