One-of-a-kind ART PORTRAITURE SESSIONS that speak to your inner life (not your outer appearance). I create spontaneous symbolic drawings that spark a conversation with your own insights, wisdom, soul, and creative-poetic thinking about your own inner world. Excellent as a one-time snapshot or as a seasonal, annual, or occasional check-in. I'm always surprised at the images that come through during these sessions, and at how people connect to them! I generally use the Touch Drawing process to create the art.
I do sessions for individuals, couples, and events. Long distance (phone and Skype) sessions available.
YOU KEEP THE RAW DRAWINGS.
1. Special Inner Portraits commissions.
2. MOUNTING your favorite/s onto wooden panels (the way I finish a lot of my own Touch Drawing art).
“Dana is a gifted artist with a unique ability to read her subject while making them feel comfortable and taken care of during the session. I just had my first experience with Inner Portraits and was delightfully surprised at the images she created as a response to what she was feeling. The images represent me well, and the cool part is that they can be reinterpreted over and over again because of their simple, yet profound style. If you’re looking for new artwork you can intimately connect with, I highly recommend Dana!”

"These words will not do justice to the magical experience of having an Inner Portrait session with Dana Wilde. Before Dana, I had never encountered nor considered that an artist could connect with what is within me, and my husband, and express the soul of our love in the external world through visual imagery. It was an inspiring and spiritual experience to undergo the portrait session. And the product of it is a truly beautiful and meaningful work of art that Daniel and I will treasure always."

"Not only did I love the look of the Inner Portraits, but it was also a very healing experience, similar to the healing energy work that I, myself, practice. It feels wonderful to have someone really see you, to witness who you are at a point in your life. I would love to do it again in a year or so, and next time bring a loved one with me!"
