Vancouver artist Dana Irving’s stylized landscapes have been described as Emily Carr meets Dr. Seuss. She is inspired by the nature of the Pacific Northwest and is influenced by North American landscape painters of the 1930s and 40s. New works by Irving are on exhibit at Ian Tan Gallery.
Irving’s works focus on the drama of light and shade, the animation of trees and hills and the weather around them.
Dana Irving studied at Douglas College, Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver and at Victoria College of Art in Victoria. Her diverse background includes formal fine art, interior design, graphic design and photography.
