“Dots and circles. Details. Straight lines. I like them because they’re different, they pop into my brain and then I know everything about the painting. I like painting landscapes. It reminds me of going outside in the summertime, and all the different leaves. There’s deer behind our house, they came out of nowhere. There were two or three of them. “ – PD
Paige Donovan was born on September 3rd, 1991 in Sycamore Circle in Audobon, PA. She is a swimmer and bocce ballplayer and has competed in the Special Olympics for backstroke, freestroke, and breaststroke. She makes artwork at the Center for Creative Works five days a week.
Over the past four years, Paige Donovan has developed a fascinating, original style of mark-making, first in acrylic paint and most recently in calligraphy ink. Donovan’s vocabulary of mark comes from a desire to invent new and different ways of manipulating her materials, as well as an almost meditative approach to her art practice, which she continues to hone and develop every day.
