We are currently showing Donna Taylors artwork along the main corridor of York Hospital. Donna is a mixed media artist working across a wide range of disciplines. She exhibits regularly with the Westside Artists group and she will be taking part in York Open Studios for the third time in April 2022.She has worked in the arts for over 25 years – mainly in the world of theatre design and production, where she has designed shows, painted scenery and made props and costumes for a wide range of companies both here in the UK and abroad. This included a period when she was full time scenic artist at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds. She was also responsible for making many of the large-scale animal puppets which were created for the York Minster Mystery Plays in 2016.
Her current work is inspired by the world around her and incorporates collage, acrylics, watercolour and inks. Drawing is a fundamental part of her practice, as is experimenting with different techniques to achieve layered and unusual effects. It is rare that she sticks to just one medium.
Donna is also regularly involved in community art projects in the city – she initiated the A YEAR OF CHANGE – ‘My Bubble’ project at the beginning of 2021 to help people through the winter lockdown and she also runs art workshops / weekly classes and art holidays.
