“Carol Howard Donati is a multidisciplinary artist working with fabric, paint, print, and recycled household materials. A signature aspect of her work is the incorporation of cast- off items from our daily lives, a process she defines as both transformative and political. Howard Donati recycles paper, plastic, household fabrics, clip tags, and discarded packaging as base material and embellishment, contrasting the human-made with organic forms to reflect our daily habits and provoke awareness.”
