Dana Lynne Andersen, M.A., is a multi-media artist, playwright and teacher with degrees in philosophy and consciousness studies. Her paintings, often very large in size, explore the swirling forces of energy that underlie matter and seek to reveal life’s numinous mystery. She believes that as our “depth perception” expands – billions of galaxies discovered in our lifetime! – it is also essential to expand perception inwardly to the vastness within. She is founder of Awakening Arts, a network of artists who “affirm the noble purpose of art as a vehicle for uplifting the human spirit.” Posters of the art from her books are available from awakeningarts.com.
Dana has illustrated three books with Dawn Publications, the highly acclaimed Universe Trilogy: Born With a Bang: The Universe Tells Our Cosmic Story, From Lava to Life: The Universe Tells Our Earth Story and Mammals Who Morph: The Universe Tells Our Evolution Story.
