Van Donna is an up-and-coming artist mixing Pointillism and Pop Art in a unique and colourful blend. She reconnected with art after finding that as a working wife and mother she had no outlet for her creativity.
‘Art is where I found my own space.', says the artist, 'It is a very special one where time doesn’t exist and I am free to manifest my emotions and thoughts in harmony. The mechanical repetitive gestures of Pointillism have a mantra-like quality that helps me balance my thoughts and be present in the here and now.’
Additional charges, including buyer’s premium, value added, sales or compensating use or equivalent tax, and all other applicable charges will apply.
In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay to us the buyer’s premium together with any applicable VAT, sales, compensating use or equivalent tax in the place of sale. Please refer to our Conditions of Sale for further details on buyer's premium.
