A second generation metaphysician, Uriel Dana has spent her life studying the world's religions, mythologies
and archetypes. She has also been a practitioner of dream yoga techniques for over 25 years. It is this background, as well as being
highly clairvoyant, that has given her work its unique mystical patina.|
Uriel lived for nearly three years in W. Germany in an apartment filled with Gage Taylor's posters and cards. She actually told someone, "If I can't paint like Gage Taylor, I don't want to paint at all." By 1984, she was his full-time painting partner in California where their success flourished untill his death in December 2000.
Her work and that of her collaboration with Gage, are included in many important private, public, corporate, and celebrity collections, in addition to more than 50 cards, posters, and other reproductions found in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Australia, and Asia. She has toured with the U.S. State Department, lecturing and exhibiting her work, as part of the "Arts America" program in the Caribbean and South America.
Uriel has been honored for her work as a fine artist, writer, and lecturer in the 21st edition of Who's Who of American Women, and the 13th edition of the International Who's Who of Intellectuals. She is also an award-winning published poet and member of the International Society of Poets. Becoming a semi-finalist in national poetry competitions (two years in a row), won her recognition in the book, Outstanding Poets of 1998, by the National Library of Poetry, and was honored as one of the Outstanding Poets of the 20th Century at the beginning of the new millenium.
She was also honored for "Outstanding Achievement in the Fine Arts" in the 1999 publication, Outstanding People of the 20th Century, (incorporating the "Outstanding Achievement Awards"), by the International Biographical Centre in Cambridge, England, as well as a nominee as "International Woman of the Year 1998, 1999, and 2000". After 15 years as a professional fine artist, Uriel became a nominee for inclusion in the 23rd ed. of Who's Who of American Art in 1998, and more recently, a nominee for Marquis Who's Who in the World 2000.
