Born in 1971 to Finnish migrants, Dana grew up in a local coastal town in southern Tasmania.  She studied Fine Arts and Psychology at the University of Tasmania, focusing her attention on studying and drawing water in detail.  Whilst her work is a continued exploration of water in coastal environments – being particularly drawn to the subtle effects of light and transparency, and how these affect mood - Dana has an intense fascination with the psychological effects of colour.  Through her courses, Dana has studied the wavelengths of certain hues and their clinical application in the treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders.  She has also worked as a Teacher’s Aide, working with children with a range of conditions such as Autism and ADHD, and explored art activities as a means of relaxation and personal development.  With this in mind, Dana’s work is noted for its’ calming “sedative” qualities.
