Dana Kinter is an artist living and making in the Fleurieu Peninsula. Drawing from the natural environment surrounding her home and an Encyclopedia of Australian Birds handed down by her Grandmother, Dana has created a signature style that embraces Australia’s native flora and fauna. Inspired by early 20th century Australian and Indigenous art, religious iconography, Japanese culture, and everything Art Nouveau, Dana employs a subdued colour palette with emphasis on the natural characteristics of her materials. Dana uses pencil acrylic on timber in her paintings, preferring to work on a series of woodblocks at once, aided by foraged treasures and views from her backyard studio. Recently, Dana has begun working with ceramics, carving and painting feathered friends with a distinctive focus on colour, line and form, onto handmade homewares that serve as a base for her artworks. Recently collaborating with Australian Iconic fashion label Gorman for the Winter 2017 clothing and homewares.
