Donna D’Aquino – Change is Good

With so much going on in the lives of our artists, we need to keep you up to date on what they are doing. They each have many balls to juggle and are always doing great new work.

For artist Donna D’Aquino this is so true.

“There certainly have been some twists and turns in my life this year,” says D’Aquino. “I left my beloved home in the western Maine mountains earlier this year and landed temporarily with family outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Then in September, I had another change of home and scenery to Loveland, Colorado.”

Here D’Aquino joined a beautiful environment of artists, Artworks Loveland. This is home to about thirty studios with a mission to bring mid-career contemporary artists to Loveland. 

“The application process was quite selective, so I am pleased to have been accepted,” shares D’Aquino. “I am super excited and quite nervous about more changes, but if you do not take a step, you never know.”

With all that said, we still consider D’Aquino a Maine artist in every sense of the word. Once you have Maine in your blood, it doesn’t just go away. 

“My hope and plan for the new studio environment are to be able to have the time, resources, and space to create the larger pieces I have been dreaming about for so long,” explains D’Aquino. “Loveland is home to the largest concentration of sculptors in the country. My new studio’s space includes a ‘Creator Space,’ which is filled with all kinds of tools and technology available to the studio artists 24/7 at no cost to us. This is an incredible thing!”

With that said, we are looking forward to some fantastic works from Donna D’Aquino’s first winter in out west. Be sure to add your name to our mailing list to receive updates on new work from all of our artists.
