1st Place – Donna McGee – “This Mortal Coil”
Donna McGee lives and creates her art in Dublin, Ireland. Donna believes, “that our universe is a constant transformation of landscape, climate, changing seasons, human relationships and human sacrifice. The rich complexity of our lives constantly evolves around these dynamic changes revealing a labyrinth entangled in an intricate network.” She goes on further and states “The Irish landscape is a constant source of inspiration to me.
