American painter, Donna Bruni, creates abstract oil paintings that reference places known, remembered or imagined, suspended within layered surfaces of color. Atmospheric and elemental, her paintings are inspired by form and flux of urban and natural environments. Her canvases focus on light patterns, movement and color to evoke a sense of place within the painted surface.
Donna Bruni grew up in Yardley, Pennsylvania. She studied art and design at Endicott College and the School of Visual Arts in New York. She received her B.A. from University of Minnesota and completed a two year studio mentorship with Women’s Art Resources of Minnesota (WARM).
Paintings by Donna Bruni are held in public and private collections throughout the United States. Her work is widely exhibited and has appeared in American Art Collector, Studio Visit, Vol. 17, American Artist, The Painting Center Registry and many local publications.
“Color, energy and emotion are the foundation of my visual style and painting process. I love the fluid materiality of oil paint and the process of transforming two-dimensional surfaces into dynamic, layered compositions through interaction of color, form and line. My paintings blend elements of nature with abstraction as a means to create visual poetry.”
