Donna Giraud is a contemporary painter and celebrated artist partner of Farmboy Fine Arts. Giraud’s portfolio is largely abstract, with pieces that are richly textured and rendered with thick expanses of pigment. Her artworks have an intensity and intimacy to them; the atmospheric appearance speaks to tranquil coastal landscapes.

A self-taught artist, Giraud has dedicated time to developing and perfecting her style and craft. With formal training in nursing, Giraud sees the healing nature of art at work. Perhaps Giraud’s trade has subtly informed her art practice – many of her pieces are perfectly at home in both hospitality and healthcare environments.

Farmboy Fine Arts has a long-standing partner in David Dean. As one of the earliest photographers with which we began collaborating, David has spent the last ten years developing his style and range – and shows no sign of slowing down. Based in Calgary, Alberta, his images are rooted in place and experience, much like the life and work of a farmer.

David’s photography is diverse and engaging, ranging from thoughtfully composed architectural shots to far-away landscapes and adventure-fueled travel imagery. His playful nature comes through in explorations of positive and negative space, and the value of each. Whether capturing quiet moments in the midst of a bustling city, or savoring the essence of a new vista, David’s work speaks for itself.

Farmboy Fine Arts was first introduced to Dana Mooney, a Vancouver-based painter, in 2013. Our team was immediately impressed with Dana’s ability to read an interior space and create pieces to perfectly complement it. True to form, Dana secured her first hotel lobby commission with FBFA not long after signing — a striking, gestural piece for the Vancouver Hyatt.

Initially drawn to her abstracted ‘Birch Tree’ series, which offers a subtle nod to nature, FBFA has watched her artistic range grow. Her portfolio offers florals and abstracts, small-scale studies and large-scale murals, soft pastels and vivid tones. Each series she creates offers a slightly different aesthetic, appealing to masculine and feminine audiences alike.

Dana is currently preparing for an artist residency in Sicily. We look forward to seeing how this new location will serve as fresh inspiration and wish her safe travels!
