Shana Danon works an artist and surface designer, creating bold, emotive artworks, patterns and illustrations with vibrant modernist style. Growing up in a family of artists nurtured her passion to become a maker and work with colour across a variety of media.
From an early age, Shana was surrounded by handmade fibre art, ceramics, painting and craft. She currently works with acrylics, digital brushes, shibori, ink and block printing.
Inspired by Mid-Century modernist design and pop culture, Shana’s celebration of colour is expressed in a contemporary way via original paintings, limited edition giclee prints, home-wares, wallpaper and textile collections.
Nostalgic sensibility and a touch of whimsy can often be seen in Shana’s work – such as references to ‘70s childhood memories of pattern and décor or ‘Schnitzel’ the family dachshund, who featured in the recent home-ware range. ‘Emilio Frank Design’ is named in honour of Shana’s creative grandfathers, Emil and Frank.
Recent highlights include being part of the Secret Women's Art Exhibition at Platform 72 Gallery 2017, auctioning an work to fundraise for the Epilepsy Art Auction 2017 and placing as finalist at the Stabilo Awards 2016 & Colour Trap Gallery 30x30 Exhibition 2016.
Shana's articles about storage and design have been featured in magazine's such as Home Beautiful and Inside Out. For more information on her professional organising business "Organised Clutter' click here.
