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.
Goodfellow’s paintings reside in collections across the country, and are represented by several galleries throughout Fairfield County, CT. She is a member of Oil painters of America, the American Impressionist Society, The Artists Alliance of East Hampton, NY, and the Salmagundi Club, in NYC ( the oldest art association in the country). In Connecticut, she belongs to the, Fairfield County Plein air Painters, the Greenwich Arts Society, the Carriage Barn Arts Center and the Rowayton Arts Center, where she served on the Board for seven years. She has taught both realistic and abstract painting at the Rowayton Arts Center since 2010.
