Dana Smiley

Nanaimo Museum — 100 Museum Way

Dana Smiley was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, moved to Vancouver Island in 1967 where she and her husband worked and raised their two children. After retirement in 2000 Dana decided to try her hand at painting. She started with watercolours and gradually included acrylics to her choice of mediums. She has spent her life on the West Coast so many of her paintings depict the coastal scene. Her paintings can be viewed at the Nanaimo Arts Council Gallery Nanaimo. Once a year her work is shown at the Art Craft Bake Sale at the Nanaimo Golf Club.
