Donna Corvi Montauk, New York

Artist Donna Corvi paints colorful expressionist views of tree branches, wind and the ever-changing seasons. "I love trees and I hope that I bring a new awareness about trees to people," says Donna. "Don't take trees for granted! The earth needs them–we need them to exist. Care for them–plant them!" Donna was born and raised in New York City, where she attended The High School of Art and Design and later graduated from Parsons School of Design with a degree in Illustration. For twenty years, she worked in the city as a freelance commercial illustrator. Using watercolor, airbrush and colored pencil, she sought out projects in advertising, publishing, greeting cards and children's games. As illustration work shifted to digital design, Donna felt a natural pull to transition to a career in painting. "It has given me the artistic freedom and fluidity I desired, and the hands on messiness of mixing paints and colors." Today, she takes daily walks along the water, in the woods and across fields to record her reference material. Her art is frequently shown at the Long Island Museum, The Heckscher Museum of Art, and The Salmagundi Club Art Gallery in New York.

    Artist Statement

    Trees have always played a thematic role in my works. Their meaning to me runs deep. Sometimes my work has reflected the simple beauty of trees with filtered light and atmosphere, and sometimes the essence of trees has been created in a more abstract and poetic way. Most of my paintings of trees are “leafless.” I prefer the graceful, skeletal bare trunks and limbs that lie beneath, that are hardly noticed, where life lies dormant… waiting. All works are painted from images seen, sketched or photographed by me during my daily walks in the woods. The fluidity and quick drying of acrylics matches my deliberate yet spontaneous brushwork.
