Dana Basel


Dana was born in Myrtle Beach, South Carolinain 1962.  Her mother has been the art business for the last 25 years and was born and raised in Northern Italy where she met and married her father.  Her mother has been a source of great support in developing her artistic talents.  Growing up in the Air Force, moving every two years was a normal way of life for the daughter of a Fighter Pilot.  Dana grew up mainly in Louisiana where the food and culture was always a great source of inspiration.   

Her guitar series was inspired by her fond childhood memories of her father playing the acoustic guitar.  Many evenings with the family were spent singing along to favorite songs.

Her paintings capture your attention with their vibrant colors and detail.  She is inspired by self-reflection and personal growth and her art has a contemporary flavor that reveals the joy and happiness of life.
