Dana McKay will be showing her Lyrical Abstract Expressionistic work in the windows of the Art Alliance for the month of September. Dana McKay grew up learning from her talented family of artists, writers, photographers, musicians and inventors and became interested in drawing, painting and photography at a very early age. Over the years, she experimented with various art forms; from lettering and layout and illustration at the Art Students League; fashion design for a department store; oil paintings, watercolors and portraits under her artist-father’s guidance; and eventually Graphic Design and Photography studies at Brookdale Community College where she worked as a graphic designer of 23 years. In addition to her career, she was always designing and making jewelry; sculpting; colored pencil drawing; and now, Lyrical Abstract Expressionism using acrylics.

Dana has won four JSPRAA awards, two of them for photography. For six years, she co-chaired, then chaired the Brookdale Annual Alumni Association Juried Art Show, and has exhibited in many other Monmouth and Bergen County shows.
