Along with the whimsical subject matter, I try to let the colors vibrate at a high level and generate a feeling of warmth and fun. I use acrylic paints and other mixed media.
Home and Design Magazine – a monthly supplement to The Philadelphia Inquirer, published an article on me written by Susan Pevaroff Berschler. It nicely described my inspiration and start as a professional artist:
"Her personal flight of fancy began as a spontaneous impulse and has soared to dramatic, life altering proportions. While walking home from work one day, the then telecommunications consultant became transfixed by a painting in the window of a London gallery. The landscape abstract, by Scottish artist John Brown, ignited a passion that compelled Dynan to walk across the street and purchase her very first art supplies. Once at home, new brushes flowed over blank canvas, unleashing – remarkably and definitively – Dynan’s inner painter.
'I had never held a paint brush before, but an hour later, I had a painting of my own,' she recalls. 'To this day, I still don’t know how or why, but here I am.' Dynan’s work definitely strikes an emotional chord, says Lynn Oberstein, (owner of Merritt Young Gallery in Ardmore, PA.) delighted to discover and showcase artists who think outside the box. 'She left her comfort zone to break through the boundaries of both her own and others’ expectations,' beams Oberstein."
