Virginia based artist, blogger and teaching artist Donna Iona Drozda is this week’s guest blogger for the
Artist as Collector series.

Collection of Donna Iona Drozda
My artist pick is Sharmon Davidson…the piece in my collection is ‘untitled’ but I find myself calling it ‘Empty and Full’ since those words are prominent in this mixed media collage.
I find myself drawn to all of Sharmon’s work. I see this piece in my collection with a fresh eye each time I take in the layers of color, the calm, the juxtaposition of geometric/meditative imagery.
The words that Sharmon has included are smart and provocative. I’m a fan and so happy to be able to share her worldview with your readers.
In addition to her studio work Donna Iona Drozda, Donna is busy with a public art project she designed, Life in Transit for “women who have liberated themselves from domestic violence, abuse and poverty,” her rich and inspirational blog: Following the Moon, and all her workshops.
Donna says this about her life/work:
My vision is to live a natural life, in harmony with the rhythms of nature, creating and sharing a balanced physical, emotional and spiritual environment where true creative wonder resides.
My vision is to turn scared into sacred inspiring the expression of joyful creative gifts and talents thereby ‘Making Life the Master Peace’.
Thanks Donna for this… and so much more.
Whose work fills you up with a fresh eye?
