Donella Ly is a mix-medium abstract artist in Tucson, working primarily in watercolor and acrylic. Donella’s practice pulls from observations surrounding her identity as Asian American, mother, and as admirer of the Tucson landscape where she has spent the majority of her lifetime. As a completely self-taught artist, her practice started as a hobby during her time caring for her children at home, finding inspiration from the likes of John Lurie, Carlo Carrà, William De Kooning and Lee Krasner.
