Top Talent For Shades Of Autumn Challenge

Good morning everyone. Julia here with another Top Talent post. Today our guest is known to many of you for her amazing talent and ability to explore many craft genres. She is the wonderfully creative:

Donna at Inky And Quirky

Donna was the very worthy winner of my Shades Of Autumn challenge and here's what she has to say:
'I'm delighted to be here today and I've made a creation on my favourite surface of wood just for this occasion using DecoArt acrylic paints.'

1. Where do you live?
I currently live in Chelmsford,Essex. I also lived in Glasgow for 8 years but I'm a London girl born and bred.

2. If you could only use three craft supplies for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Ooh that's a tough one! I suppose I'd have to say stencils, acrylic paints and lumps of wood to create on.

3. Which blog artist most inspires you and why?
Now this is another tough one. I gain inspiration from a wide variety of blogs but if pushed I'd have to say Dina Wakeley as I love her very loose, natural way of creating art. I can be too neat at times!

4. What colour do you rarely use and why?
I'd have say the colour blue. I very rarely use dark blues at all, it's just not a colour I'm drawn to, I prefer the green spectrum.

5. Do you have your own creative space in your home?
I do at the moment. I had to relocate from using the kitchen table when part of the ceiling fell down on it!! It's only a small room and I've outgrown it now especially when trying to find a place to store all my finished creations.

6. What goal would you love to achieve in your life and why?
I would love to see some of my artwork made into stamps that went into mass production. I would also love to encourage more people to take up drawing too ;)

I'd like to share Donna's wonderful creation with you now:

Wow! What a beautiful piece of art this is. I love that gorgeous Klimt style lady and her glorious hair! The piercing turquoise eyes of the cat seem to follow you where ever you move! I love the delicate background which is a perfect backdrop for the bold images. It's also great to find out a little more about Donna too. Love the idea that one day we may see her art as a set of stamps! Thank you so much Donna for sharing your wonderful art with us at Our Creative Corner.

So, another Top Talent spot is over and we all wait eagerly to see who will follow in Donna shoes from this months challenge.
