Donna Kuhn

I am always keen to hear from artists who would be interested in a blog post focusing on their work. Usually, I ask for an artist’s statement and a few images which they would like to showcase, but these guidelines are very flexible and I am open to suggestions. If you would like a post on your work, please do contact: kdoutsiderart@yahoo.com.

This post will focus on the work of Donna Kuhn.


“I make art because that is the only way life makes sense to me. A recurrent theme in my work is the face: semi-abstract, colorful and emotional. I don’t choose to draw these faces. Their forms just come to me. They jump off the page and stare at you. Dare to stare back.  I have tried to choose between media. I cannot. I feel fully engaged and alive when I’m creating. I’m a maker of images more than a storyteller. My work is about being a woman and an outsider. It has been described as playful, haunting, bold, whimsical, colorist, sad, poetic, mysterious and tense.” – Donna Kuhn.
