Island of Kauai

The artistic inspiration of Dana Ridenour began as a child living in Hawai‘i. Her love for the Islands’ tropical atmosphere and native lifestyle can be seen through many of her works. Ridenour’s deep respect for exotic cultures has creatively influenced her personal life and in turn, is reflected in her art. She attended college in Florence, Italy where she studied drawing and painting. While working as a Polynesian dancer at Disneyland she continued her education at the art institute in Laguna Beach, CA. She then moved to Tahiti, where she honed her style. The intricate unity of nature’s beauty in the human form and striking scenic perfection is a reflection of her childhood and extensive travels. View her work at her gallery, Kaua‘i Arts, in Princeville Shopping Center, next to Lappert’s.
