"It is an exploration of my family on Christmas Eve through many years. It looks at how we treat this holiday very different from the rest of the year, even though many of us do not believe in the holiday itself. I am unsure of how Christmas traditions began in our family, but I believe they need to be examined in order to understand how our family can make positive changes in the future."

Dana's artworks show a continuing interest and exploration of family history and interpersonal relationships which extends across her drawing/collage, printmaking and bookmaking practises.
