Donald Eaton

Donald Eaton was born in London in 1956 and studied at St. Martin's College of Art, London. He has spent most of his adult life, travelling in some of the more remote places of the world and his paintings are a record of what he observed there.
He has exhibited his work in places as diverse as London, Istanbul, Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, Honduras, Cambodia, Brittany, Corsica and the island of Réunion where he has finally settled with his family in Ravine des Cabris, St. Pierre.

His fascination with the folklore and traditions of the tribal peoples he has lived among is reflected in the colours and exuberance of his paintings.
