Donna Lee Nyzio
2018 Entrepreneur Fellow
Donna's stomping ground is the real world, both solid and subtle. She is naturally drawn to the objects, ways of life, and simple beauty that are regularly overlooked by busy folks. She paints bold abstract shapes and ties them together with ribbons of reality. Most of her scenes are atmospheric, creating a romantic presentation of everyday events, locations, and objects.
Exploring the Eastern seaboard, she experiences coastal America. She is present and involved, creating art the old-fashioned way—talking to the people she meets and taking interest in things that are here now but slowly disappearing. With her imagery, she generates impressions of a shared culture, inviting her audience to bask in the air of tranquility, subtle story, and soft colors of our maritime history.
