Dana Kinter is an artist living and making on Kaurna land, South Australia. A third generation settler to this land, of mixed European descent. Drawing from the natural environment surrounding her home/studio nestled alongside the Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park overlooking the Fleurieu Peninsula coast, Dana has created a signature style that embraces Australia’s native flora and fauna. Dana employs a subdued colour palette with emphasis on the natural characteristics of her materials, using pencil acrylic on timber in her paintings, aided by foraged treasures and views from her backyard studio. Always exploring creative mediums, Dana also creates unique ceramics, carving and painting with a distinctive focus on colour, line and form, onto hand built objects that serve as a base for her artworks.
Collaborations include Australian Iconic fashion label Gorman 2017 & 2019 clothing and homewares and Adairs homewares 2019, 2020 & 2021.
