Private: Donna Bolam

About the Artist: 

Donna Bolam is a Lakefield-based abstract and mixed media artist. In her work, Donna uses symbolism to visualize the meaningful passages in life and death that are encrypted in the archives of her soul. Donna relies on her senses and prompts herself to bring forward these explorations into her paintings as textural sounding boards for giving shape and colour to what can’t be explained with words.

Donna has studied with artists Pauline Bradshaw (classical drawing), Brian Smith (figurative abstraction & portraiture), Brian Atyeo (landscape & abstract), Janice Mason Steeves (coldwax/oil), a mentorship with American tonalist John Felsing, Pamela Caughey (mixed media/abstract/coldwax) and Steve Rose (Abstract & Non-Objective painting).

Diversity of expression is the language that best echoes Bolam’s voice and her vision.
