Don't ask artist Donna Bieren which medium she likes best.
She'll tell you she likes everything.
And don't ask if she considers herself an illustrator in perhaps the realist style or abstract style.
She'll tell you that she doesn't go for labels.
Labels are for canned vegetables, not artists.
"My thing is not the style, it's the medium and how I can make it work," she explains.
And with that perspective, Bieren has established herself over the past decade as ambassador of the visual arts in the Carbon-Schuylkill region.
