The artist often uses milder pastel colours in her works, creating paintings that are like fragments of peripheral vision on a sunny day. Her colours are not explosive, but rather immersive, and the similar tone of the different hues invites a closer visual inspection. Each painting seems to exist as a series of flat planes of colour that touch but never quite blend together. Many are reminiscent of the dappling pattern that occurs when sunlight hits the ground through trees.

Donna’s portfolio on her website, www.donnabruni.com, is divided into three collections: City, Spirit and Elements. The latter category is the most vibrant, with deep blues and splashes of saturated red expressing water and fire in great sensory detail.
