 Bumi and Dana

Hi, friend!
My name is Dana. I'm an illustrator, pediatric nurse practitioner, and former professional cyclist currently based in Connecticut. I began creating postcards for my friends and family who live far away. After a childhood of frequently moving around, I learned that coming home to snail mail from friends and family is one of the best feelings imaginable. I love creating imaginary slice-of-life works and panel art. I am inspired by video games, the magical thinking of the kids I talk to at work, and comic strips.
When I'm not drawing, you'll find me running, riding my bike, or hanging out with my wiener dog, Bumi. 
I've worked with Yale University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison during some artistic adventures, and am always looking forward to new opportunities!
