Does an artist choose her subjects,
or do her subjects choose her?
My body of work
those things that speak to my spirit and my mind. My life is complex,
so I seek to keep my paintings simple. For the sake of my soul and my
sanity, it has been my intent to create the most beautiful
representations I can of the subjects that move me the most deeply.
Nature's bounty captivates me. To figure out how to catch my responses
in pigment will challenge me as long as I live.
I have always lived near water, and now could not imagine ever residing
far from the ocean. The duality of its power and serenity has moved me
to create some of my most meaningful images. I have explored the coasts
and waterways of Florida by canoe for thirteen years. This intimate
interaction with water has always intrigued me, tested me, and
sometimes terrified me, and has taught me about responding to the
natural environment more than any art classes ever could.
The best part of being an artist is the continuing discovery of those
subjects that take hold of me and demand to move through my
consciousness until they are revealed in pigment. Just a few paddle
strokes around the river bend awaits a stray shaft of light that will
transform the mundane into the exquisite… and with luck, I’ll be there
to witness it and then share it with you.

What is a Giclee?
The Giclee ("zhee-clay") process
developed from experiments conducted by famed rock musician Graham Nash
(The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash) and Mac Holbert. They
discovered a here-to-fore undocumented application for the Iris Inkjet
printer. The Iris 3047 had been developed for proofing digital graphics
but no one had imagined using it to produce fine art. 1991 saw the
opening of the worlds first digital fine art studio, largely due to Mr.
Nash's vision. We have now entered the 21 st Century and the printers
used today for Giclee production far exceed the capabilities of what
existed in the 1990's.
Giclee printing has many advantages over other printmaking methods. For
example, each piece is individually produced allowing an artist to
order one reproduction at a time if desired, so the artist is not
obligated to finish and submit an edition to long term storage. Donna
Kazo demands that the inks and substrate (papers, canvas) used for
reproducing her work be of the highest quality.
Donna's landscapes can transport you to a peaceful setting and her
Shell fragments series contains many beautiful works. Her teapots are
Teapots Number 2
Besides Giclee prints Donna also has original art available. Donna also
does select animal portraits. I have seen many of her clients exclaim
"You got the likeness perfectly!"
Please contact Donna for information concerning her prints and original
work, tell her we say hi.
