Dana Iarussi is a colorist in the contemporary impressionistic style. Her passions for life and art are vividly seen in her colorful canvases. Dana paints with acrylic emulsions and glazes that she mixes herself. This allows her to transform the images in her minds’ eye to the canvas. By experimenting with this never-ending kaleidoscope of colors and textures, Dana is able to transform common and ordinary subjects into unequaled artistic interpretations.
Moving around the country, Dana studied and learned from the work of the American and European masters. She has spent countless hours studying and painting in the museums of New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Cleveland, Houston, London, Copenhagen and Paris. She studied life drawing with Kay Hazlett Hauer. She majored in art history at Marjorie Webster College and studied at the Alfred C. Glassell School of Art in Houston. Today she lives and works in Canon City, Colorado.
The paintings in the Artists Gallery are scenes that were created in Fremont, Custer and Chaffee Counties. The florals are native to Colorado.
Dana has participated in juried and small group shows in New York’s Greenwich Village, New Jersey, Ohio and Texas and has won several awards. Her paintings are in restaurants, banks and private collections in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Georgia, Florida and North Carolina.
