Dana, a Hudson Valley native, started painting at an early age by watching cable shows of people giving instruction with poster paints. She went on to obtain a BA in Studio Arts from SUNY Oswego and has spent the last 20 years painting murals on the walls and windows of people's homes and business. She believes that the best way to relax is to get lost in the blending of paint on any canvas and just enjoy the experience. An Event Planner in her previous career, she is no stranger to hosting groups of people who love to sip on drinks and have a good time. An animal lover and a foodie, she likes to try new things and experience the unusual.
