“If you can’t find what you’re looking for…create it.” These are the words that first inspired Designer, Donna Benedetto, to return to her decorative painting roots and start creating art for her clients homes. Painting for me allows a total sense of freedom. No limits, no restrictions, only those imposed upon by myself. My artwork is spontaneous, I don’t plan out what I am going to paint. I just let what ever will come out that day develop in an organic, authentic way. I do however have a love affair of experimentation of materials. I love to try out new products and intermix them to create something unique. Some pieces quickly feel complete and others need to develop over time. Patience is not my forte, but I am learning with art that it is imperative. The creative process cannot be forced, it must come naturally.I like working in this manner, because I never know what I will create on a given day and that excites me!
