Portrait of Dana Anderson



Dana Anderson is quickly making her mark in the art world. Come see why she is emerging as a museum-worthy artist. She is Alabama’s first-ever and one of only a few of the country’s “most-challenged” artists to have her own gallery exhibit. She is 25 years old and has Down syndrome and autism. She cannot care for herself, does not read, write, or speak, but has found her voice in acrylic painting. Dana works with canvas or board, and excels in landscape, abstract landscape, and abstract art. She creates a natural blending of loud and softened hues, wheeling movements of color, and dynamic visual tension. She has only been painting one year, but has over 160 pieces and has been: 

  • Accepted into the prestigious National ArtAbility show in Philadelphia.
  • Spotlighted by the national organization “The Art of Autism”.
  • Featured in the current Jan/Feb 2018 issue of Alabama magazine.
