DANA GOODFELLOW PAINTER / PRINTMAKER
Dana Goodfellow is an award-winning, third-generation artist. Her keen sense of light is the unifying quality and primary focus in her paintings and prints. Describing herself as a “colorist,” Goodfellow’s unique ability to blend and harmonize colors was perfected during an earlier, decade-long career in the fashion industry working for Saks Fifth Avenue, Anne Klein & Co, and Blassport Ltd.
Although she often paints in the impressionist or abstract mode, her training has been in the classical tradition. She received a B.A. in Art and Art History from Marymount College in Tarrytown, NY, and has studied at the Arts Students League in New York, NY, and the Silvermine Guild School in New Canaan, CT.
Goodfellow’s paintings reside in collections across the country, and are represented by several galleries throughout Fairfield County, CT. She is a member of The Salmagundi Club in NYC, with members such as George Innis, Don Demers, Willaim Merritt Chase and Child Hassam etc and The Artists Alliance of East Hampton, NY. In Connecticut, she belongs to the Fairfield County Plein-aire Painters, Greenwich Arts Society, Lyme Art Association, New Haven Paint & Clay Club, and the Rowayton Arts Center. She has served on the Board of the Rowayton Arts Center for 6 years and has taught painting classes in both realistic and abstract art there since 2010. The artist currently maintains a studio in Darien, CT.
