As a long time resident of Hamilton County, Dana Rae Roudebush grew up on a farm and was strongly influenced by nature for her artwork. She graduated from Hamilton Southeastern High School and went on to attend Herron School of Art at IUPUI. Throughout her adult life she has been involved in various design careers such as art gallery associate, custom picture framer, corporate art consultant, furniture sales, floral designer, faux painter/muralist and freelance design/decorating consultant. She has also taught an art class at DePauw University for four years, all while continuing to paint.

Dana devotes more time to painting nature inspired images in acrylics. Because of her love of animals she has had a lot of fun painting colorful modern pet portraits. Dana will continue to accept commissions of various subject matter.
