Donna Launey

Donna began pursuing her artistic endeavors after retiring from a busy medical practice as a Diagnostic Radiologist.  As an acrylic painter, her driving force is to create passionate and imaginative interpretation of everyday subjects.  She uses quick, bold and expressive brushstrokes thus creating work with movement and energy.  Her Fauvist eye demands the use of color and contrast to add a vivid intensity which is a common thread in her paintings.  She is particularly intrigued by subject matter with a sense of history such as aging buildings in an urban setting, weathered barns and lush overgrown greenery found in the bayous and gardens of her south Louisiana homeland.  Her work has been in numerous local juried art shows and is included in private collections across the US.
