ABOUT DONNA MARCHETTI DESIGN
Artist and owner of Donna Marchetti Design, Donna specializes in making one-of-a-kind hand-dyed scarves using the finest materials. Each design is executed individually, beginning with a piece of luxurious material to which she applies dyes with brushes and other tools, much as an artist paints a picture.
The result is a unique piece of wearable art that will bring many years of pleasure. Donna Marchetti Design also creates stunning framed wall pieces and accepts custom orders for special occasions and bridal parties. You will find her participating in local and regional art fairs, and her art creations are showcased in many galleries and boutiques.
“After studying drawing and watercolor, I found my favorite medium – silks and other fibers! Nothing takes color quite like fabric, and I love mixing custom colors for each item I make.” A long time Cleveland Heights resident, Donna is an avid swimmer and journalist.
Welcome to Donna Marchetti Design!
After careers in music, journalism and publishing I decided to devote myself full time to my love of art. I studied drawing and watercolor at the Cleveland Museum of Art, then discovered my favorite medium when I tried silk painting. It has many similarities to watercolor, particularly in the way colors blend.
Silk takes dyes like no other medium, and that's one of the things I love about it. The result is a vibrant and exuberant display of color.
Each piece is one-of-a-kind; there is no way to duplicate the designs or colors exactly.
I find the process very meditative, which, for me, is one of its most rewarding aspects.
