Find the perfect art gift for the most important women of your life (mother, wife, partner…).
As a suggestion, why not look at Van Donna’s art? her story is that of a woman, a mother and a wife, who found a special place for herself in art.
This is her story, in her own words:
“Being a woman is not always easy. Being a mother, a wife and having a busy full-on career can be a daunting task. For most of my life as a young woman, I had been constantly shuffling around trying make ends meet: being there for my family and being successful at work.
But it all came at a price, a very high one. One day I awakened to the realization that I had no time at all for myself: by constantly playing different roles, I had lost touch with the person I am.
There was no space left for me to explore my feelings, needs, ideas and to express myself within the constraints of a hectic life. So I started to reorganize my priorities and to cut more space for myself, trying to get in touch with that beautiful person I thought I’d lost.
“Art is where I found my own space. When I paint I am in a different place, somewhere I call ‘the zone’. It is a very special one where time doesn’t exist and I am free to manifest my emotions and thoughts in harmony.
My paintings are an expression of the world within me and of the things I love. It is a world full of colours, hope and beauty.”
