Artist Bio: Based out of Groton Massachusetts, Dana has been creating Art for over 30 years. Although she works in several mediums, including watercolor and acrylics, alcohol ink is the medium she feels most connected to; the abstract fluidity she creates evokes the beauty of nature, while the figures and silhouettes present in her work represent the human connection to the natural world. The octopuses and other animals she enjoys painting represent the wonderful strangeness and beauty of nature.
Dana divided her childhood between New England and France; this early exposure to galleries and museums across Europe influenced her love of Art and its history. Although her early degree and career in Art History lead to working with other’s art rather than her own, she never lost the drive to create. Today, Dana’s primary job is being a mom to her three children. Creating art while being a mom can be challenging, but Dana hopes to set an example by following her passion; her young artists are understanding and often encouraging of her art obsession.
Dana’s award winning work has been featured in Sun Stone Studio in West Concord, MA, Greenbelt’s juried “Art in the Barn” show, the Attleboro Art Museum, Gallery Twist, the Topsfield Fair, several online shows run by Art Fluent, and many private collections.
