June 2022: Dayna Collins

Dayna’s fiery red hair sets the tone for how she makes her art and lives her life. She is an energetic, intuitive, abstract painter working in plaster, oil and cold wax, a collagist working with scavenged book scraps and faded fragments of ephemera, and an avid collector/junker of discarded objects, which she uses in her assemblage art.


Dayna shows her art in four Pacific Northwest galleries. Her  work can be seen in several published books, including Art for Everyone, Oil and Cold Wax, Art Abandonment, The Mixed-Media Artist, and Cold Wax Medium.
