Dana earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design, at Mass College of Art. After graduation she traveled to Europe where she remained in Munich, Germany for 13 years. Traveling throughout Europe, and visiting museums there, influenced her artistic values and appreciation of nature and art.
Dana eventually settled in Pembroke and discovered Pastel painting. It was love at first stroke! Dana prefers landscape painting and is especially drawn to waterscapes - she loves the reflections and the movement of water. Ever evolving, Dana has recently ventured into abstract art.
