Donald James Waters

Donald Waters was born in Sydney. He is an established Australian artist with an illustrious career spanning over three decades. Amongst his many personal ideals there has always been a sense of movement and colour. His elongated figures in childlike situations emphasizes this. Donald’s works are held in private and corporate collections around the world, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s art collection. He has completed several government commissioned projects and participated in community programmes. In 2016 he was awarded an Order of Australia (OAM) for his services to the community and the arts. He was previously recognised as Gold Coast Citizen of the Year in 2010. Donald is a man who is passionate about his art. He sees it as an adventure that must be experienced not only by the artist, but also by the viewer.
