About

Dana’s paintings reflect an intense exploration of the world and her subsequent quest for inner expression of that experience. The bold physicality of her painterly surfaces is balanced with a sense of tender vulnerability and an obvious love for the process of painting. “The landscapes do not depict a specific place‚ but rather a recording of many places I have lived without borders or boundaries‚” she explains.
