Donna Morin was born in Michigan and currently resides in Southern California. She is a painter, printmaker, and collage artist inspired by water, light, and air, which to her, represent spirituality and healing.
Her influences include Kasimir Malevich and Henri Matisse. She also borrows the stylized patterns derived from nature found in the home interior designs of the 1920s through 1940s. Combining theories of Malevich and his “zero of form,” the square, Morin uses it both as a format and as a balancing motif where the equal four sides represent the corners of the universe: North, South, East, and West.
Morin’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States and is found in collections in Southern California.
