About Me

Donna Brewins-Cook

Born Donna Cook, I have lived in Yorkshire all my life. I studied at Yorkshire Coast College and then completed a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University.

Natural environments and especially northern light inspire me.  I merge remembered images or part of an image with an intuitive use of colour and texture which often results in abstraction.  I draw inspiration from Turner, Hodgkin, O’Keefe and Hambling who have all explored our interaction with colour and memory.

I hope my paintings say something about the experience and memory of place and the constant change we go through. 

I have had a number of private and public commissions, most notably a painting featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs TV programme (Sept 2013).


If you would like to commission an original painting from me I will be happy to discuss this with you. I will require a 20% non-refundable deposit of the agreed price to cover the costs of materials.
