About Donna Bray-Zakreski

Donna Bray-Zakreski Nature and Spirit Dancing Together<br />Nature holds the ability to inspire Donna - with its ever changing palette and complexity of color. Environmental concerns haunt her - global warming, dwindling fish stalks and bird populations, the depletion of rain forests along with all the plants and creatures. These creatures are her focus. Spirituality and the ethereal intertwine with nature and its concerns to become part of her creative spirit. <br />Creating art was her solace as a child. Now her artistic pursuits are like a compulsion that is only soothed by creating with textiles. The texture of fabric with its bold palette can be manipulated into expressing thoughts and feelings. The use of dyes, inks, paints, watercolor crayons and surface design techniques further cultivates this communication.<br />Donnas quilts are characterized by elaborate, flowing machine quilting, often enhanced with a medley of beads or other embellishments. Their vibrant colors are complimented with distinct, brightly textured line. Planned with forethought, completed spontaneously, her work reflects nature and spirit dancing together.
