Dana originally hails from Plymouth, Ohio. Her journey in art began shortly after her birth. Recognized throughout grade school as always having a sketchbook in tow, she decided to share her passion and love for art with others. That decision lead her to study both Art Education and Fine Arts at Ashland University, where her work was displayed in several gallery openings. She completed her coursework in Fine Arts in 2017 with a studio concentration in Printmaking and studio minor in Painting. In the classes she instructs, she hopes to create and environment which facilitates creative and critical thinking in artists of all ages.
