The artist’s emphasis is on the integration of color and texture in the design of wall hung analog clocks, exploring both the variability of the medium and the harmony of his craft.

Mr. Donovan earned a Master of Arts in Furniture Design at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Over time, the furniture making has largely given way to wood sculpture. A host of outcomes, often including wood turning and the application of color, are achieved through an evolving range of techniques. Works are marked by precise craft, driven into the realm of art with exuberant texture, playful color and a conceptual spirit. Mr. Donovan’s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions, publications and in many public and private collections. The artist currently creates in Columbus, Ohio after arriving from Erie, Pennsylvania in 2022.
