In 1974 Donna walked into the Spider Web weaving shop in Clearwater, Florida and discovered fibers - their richness of texture, their color intensity, and began to create anything. She studied weaving with Jackie Hearth at the Spider Web and attended many workshops including Convergence 1976 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Then for several years during the 1970’s and early 1980’s, I displayed tapestries, rugs and fiber forms throughout the southeast.
“Rescuing an abandoned hubcap has large appeal to me, an interesting challenge. A committed recycler and re user, for a few years I coordinated Reduce, Reuse, Recycle efforts for our local health care system. In my present work I use lots of castoff paper, plastic and other items I find interesting .”Donna Plunkett
