Danna is an East Texas native who spent time in Katy, TX and Reno, NV. Danna has always been an artist in different mediums from flowers to painting murals. Although her background is in the medical field, her true calling has always been painting.
She enjoys the art of Edgar Degas and his use of light but also the bold, abstract colors of Wassily Kandinsky. Danna said," Teaching at PWAT is such a joy. Helping people realize that it really is easier than they think to paint in addition to being so much fun. I have to agree with Bob Ross. 'Everyday is a good day when you paint!'"
