Dana’s current work deconstructs books and reforms them into paper sculptures.
Her primary interest surrounds oak leaves that are hand-cut from book pages. These new leaves are formed into sculptural works incorporating handmade papers, natural tree branches, wood, and other embellishments that ask viewers to explore their own relationships with trees, wood, and paper.
Dana and Dean Allen opened their Gallery and Art Framing business in May, 2016. Join them the first Friday of each month for opening receptions in their gallery.
So, how do I get my name on the list?
