Donna Newman

Donna Newman is the artist behind Eden-designs Murals. A freelance artist based in the Midlands, she has been working as a professional muralist and painter for over 15 years. Graduating from Coventry University with a fine art degree, Donna responds to clients with creativity and flair producing original, playful designs in a wide variety of subjects. Working predominantly as a commissioned artist within school settings, she seeks to inspire young people by transforming their learning environments with her vibrant artwork. Her unique and innovative designs always seek to educate through their creative interpretation of the curriculum and she often works directly with School groups to create bespoke artwork through collaborative children’s art workshops. A self-proclaimed addict of public art trails, Donna has worked closely with Wild in Art on over 50 sculpture commissions helping to raise over £200,000 for charitable causes through their auction sales.

Donna’s design is a celebration of Scotland’s national flower. Adorned with stylised stalks of prickly thistles and golden honeycomb, the sculpture is abuzz with big furry bumble bees. The artist has been inspired by traditional woodcut prints which are referenced in the deep purple line work embellished with a rich gold metallic paint.
