About Eclectic Quill

Hi! My Name is Dana and I’m Eclectic.

Eclectic Quill started as a way to showcase my work as a web designer, graphic designer, and illustrator, but has slowly morphed into so much more.

Eclectic Quill is here to help aspiring graphic designers, illustrators, and DIY bloggers grow their blogs and their portfolios through design, illustration, and blogging tips, tutorials, and resources.

Dana of Eclectic Quill

(adjective) deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.

Eclectic Quill is still in its infancy stage, but here are a few things that you can look forward to in the future.

But who is the person behind Eclectic Quill?

Fueled by caffeine, music, and a desire to create. I’m a wife, mother of three, dog lover, design geek, voracious reader, proud Canadian, and grunge music expert.

For me, design and illustration isn’t just my job.
It’s also my passion, my hobby, and my lifestyle.
And I hope my work reflects that.

You’re Still Here? Here are some fun facts about me:

  • My name is pronounced Day-na not Da-na.
  • I’m a proud Canadian but lived in Scotland for three years as a child.
  • I’m a huge fan of rock, but 90s grunge is my favourite. (I’ve even travelled to Seattle twice to see grunge bands in their natural habitat.)
  • My birthday is April 16 which coincides with the release date of the Temple of the Dog album and Soundgarden’s first public appearance after reforming (billed as the Nudedragons).
  • I almost never watch tv. (Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and The X-Files don’t count, right?)
  • While you probably won’t find me in front of the tv screen, I can usually be found in front of a computer monitor.
