Introducing Donna von Holdt

Introducing Donna von Holdt

Australian born Donna von Holdt studied fine art at the National Art School in Sydney.



She moved with her family (husband and three sons) to Connecticut in 1998. Here she found herself feeling a deep affinity for the landscapes of New England.

The art captures a sense light that is hard to describe, utilizing an ethereal abstract style and old world methods of veiling and burnishing with various mediums. Her subjects include rural barns, meadows and pastures, marshes and moors, seascapes of Nantucket and the Eastern coastline.



Donna worked professionally as an analytical illustrator for many years, which can sometimes express itself in her paintings but mainly, they reflect a move toward simplicity.

She jokes about her poor eyesight, to which she credits her ability to focus on mood and light without getting mired in unnecessary details (something we could all brush up on).
