ABOUT SHANA DANON:

 

My work as an artist and surface designer celebrates bold emotive colour with vibrant modernist style.

Artworks, patterns and illustrations are created  with the intention to evoke joyful memories and are inspired by my passion for Mid Century design.

Growing up in a family of artists nurtured my passion to become a maker and work with colour across a variety of media. From an early age, I was surrounded by handmade fibre art, ceramics, painting and craft. Currently I enjoy working with acrylics, digital brushes, shibori, ink and block printing.

Nostalgic sensibility and a touch of whimsy often feature in original paintings, limited edition giclee prints, home-wares, wallpaper and textile collections. References of ‘70s childhood memories of pattern and décor or ‘Schnitzel’ the family dachshund, have featured in recent home-ware ranges. Emilio Frank Design is named in honour of my creative grandfathers, Emil and Frank.

My blog 'Mid Mod Muse' blog features all things modernist that inspires the Emilio Frank Design studio. You can follow the posts here:
