About Dana Fox
Dana Fox is the author of the bestselling Watercolor With Me book series, which includes three titles: Watercolor With Me: In The Forest, Watercolor With Me: In The Ocean, and her most recent release, Watercolor With Me: In The Jungle.
She is a Canadian-based artist, founder of the Wonder Forest product brand (wonderforest.com) and owner of Dana Fox Creative, a small art and design studio.
Although she has a lifetime of traditional art training, Dana spent over a decade building her career as a website and digital designer before rediscovering painting as a method of relaxation and anxiety management.
"I fell in love with watercolor and how calming the practice was. I was able to eliminate stress and express my feelings through art, unlike I had before."
With her extensive background in technical digital work, she began creating patterns and watercolor designs for home decor items and tech accessories, which can be found in stores worldwide including Bloomingdale's, Target, Nordstrom, Wayfair, and Urban Outfitters.
Dana has since started teaching watercolor painting online in her Watercolour Workshop (watercolour-workshop.com) and over on her ever-growing YouTube channel (youtube.com/thewonderforest). She has also created her own line of premium synthetic watercolor brushes which can be purchased on Amazon or in her online shop at http://wonderforest.com.
