Dana Kinter is an artist living and making on Kaurna land, South Australia. Drawing from the natural environment surrounding her home/studio nestled alongside the Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park overlooking the Fleurieu Peninsula coast, Kinter has created a signature style that embraces Australia’s native flora and fauna. She employs a subdued colour palette with emphasis on the natural characteristics of her materials, using pencil acrylic on timber in her paintings, aided by foraged treasures and views from her backyard studio.
Always exploring creative mediums, Kinter also creates unique ceramics, carving and painting with a distinctive focus on colour, line and form, on to hand-built objects that serve as a base for her artworks.
Collaborations include work with Australian fashion label Gorman on clothing and homewares in 2017 and 2019, and with homewares retailer Adairs in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
