Dana Graap

There is a whimsy in Dana’s work and a consistent combination of storybook and charming visual imagery. Dana’s focus is her sketchbook of drawings and large scale mixed media painting. She turns to art history books for her inspiration. She often includes herself in her work. After participating in a workshop with a playwright she was inspired to write her own play. Her play “The Hot Rock Hotel” was produced and performed in local theater here in Buffalo New York. She plans on writing more plays in her future. Dana was pleased to be a featured as the subject of a short documentary created by Starlight Studio and  Squeaky Wheel Media Center, titled, The Whole Shebang. Look for it on Starlight’s Vimeo page.. It is very clear in this documentary Dana’s passion for history, her advocacy for women, and the state of political affairs.  Her sense of humor and her strong opinions endears her to all around her.
