New York artist, Dana Loberg

 What inspires me in art are the relationships and interactions I observe from those around me.  My friends and family, as well as the people I meet, inspired me to show and paint a time or situation that people find endearing and important.

 Whether it's something as insignificant as a hug or a lazy moment by the water, I find that it is in these moments that people may feel peace or happiness.  I try to repeat these feelings in a more permanent setting in my paintings.
