About Dana Sypniewski

As a child Dana showed great interest in drawing, so beautifully illustrating her books and school projects that teachers often kept them. With a passion for colour and interior decorating, Dana went on to study at the Julian Ashton School of Arts followed by sculpture and colour and design at East Sydney Technical College. Dana was later inspired by art tutor colleagues, whilst employed at Macquarie University.

Dana has taken classes and workshops with local art societies, conducted by high profile artists including Drummoyne Art Society’s John Perkins, whom she finds inspiring. She has attended ‘Art in Action’ for over 20 years and painted in Tuscany with artist Ron Muller of Melbourne. Her paintings can be found in England, Italy and Poland in high profile establishments.

Dana’s Australian landscape work captures a translucent quality with her use of colour, light and harmony, achieved by loading the brush with very thick paint and little medium. Composition is also very important. Dana draws and paints in oils, acrylics and watercolour, and her subject matter is diversified including both modern and traditional. Dana has won many art awards and first prizes including the Bankstown and Drummoyne Art Societies, the Combined Art Society and Rotary Exhibitions.

At Drummoyne’s Open Awards 2011, Dana won the Member’s Section with Country Magic. The Judge said of this work “This painting captures everything about the subject – taking the viewer on a relaxed journey. It has a pleasing simplicity and interesting surface texture. Dana’s winning painting has also appeared in the Australian Artist Magazine on two occasions”.
