About Dana


Dana Levin began her fine art education at the young age of 14, attending the competitive fine arts summer program, Belvoir Terrace in Lenox, MA. and in high school the prestigious New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida. She continued her studies at the prominent Art Institute of Chicago, where her achievements earned her an early graduation with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Seeking to enhance her artistic abilities and proficiency, Levin then moved to Italy to train under painter Daniel Graves, and learn the techniques of the European masters at the Florence Academy of Art. She completed the three-year curriculum and upon graduation was asked to join the school’s drawing and painting faculty for the next five years and is considered to be among one of their most important alumni.

Levin’s search for meaningful subjects for her paintings has taken her throughout the United States, Eastern and Western Europe, the Middle East, and South America. Additionally, she has been awarded numerous prizes and scholarships from organizations, which include the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco, the Art Renewal Center and the John F. and Anna Lee Stacey Fund. Her work has also been published in several prestigious catalogues and magazines.

The use of light and shadow is virtuoso. Below are some other interesting web sites I found by researching Dana. I noticed she is listed in the latest edition of Who's Who in American Art.
