About Donna Blackhall

Art Prints

When I was a child I had one of those 110mm cameras and decided I would write and photograph the next great American bird field guide but I had a lot of trouble getting close enough to anything other than the dead birds the cat brought me so I gave up my book dreams but kept my love of art and photography. The 35mm replaced the 110mm and I learned a lot about photography from my mother. I took art classes through school to help develop my eye for balance, color and design, and I later attended Brooks College of Graphic Design. As a member of the Concord Art Association I won 2nd and a 3rd place in two different shows with my fine art paintings. I sign all my paintings 'Blacky' as a memorial to my father. This was his nickname while he served in WWII. Soon thereafter, digital cameras hit the scene and I let go of film forever. My intent was to reproduce poster prints of my fine art but found I enjoyed being outside with the camera more than I enjoyed being inside with the paintbrush, however I still wield the brush as inspiration hits. I love experimenting with all kinds of mediums and combining things to create unique pieces.

I have a diverse gallery set to enjoy. Abstract water photography images make wonderful pieces for interior design. Graffiti street art is an interesting compliment to urban loft living. My galleries can answer any artistic need from boudior to boutique. What's on your walls?

Exhibited at The Artists Alley, San Francisco
September 2009 through March 2010

Iron Women

This is a series of images with a message about the strength of women. My idea behind the iron clad images I have posted here is that their skin looks as if it were forged from steel or iron. It is the idea that women look soft but are actually quite strong and can withstand a great deal in this world. The extension of that in these particular images are that women should be the owners of their own destiny and sexuality. They hold their own keys; the arm, leg and hand positioning represent the protection of self. Women in many societies donít hold that seemingly simple freedom.
