Dana Caldera

Dana Caldera is a visual and installation artist living and working in the Houston Heights. Her work focuses on human interaction and individual identity. She draws her inspiration from her experiences and observations of community.

Caldera came to the arts via an undergraduate degree in engineering. She spent four years employed as a petroleum engineer in Houston before embracing her identity as an artist. Caldera fought her way back into the art world through teaching art at a high school, developing a portfolio and studio practice, and subsequently earning her MFA from HBU in May 2017.

Caldera’s artwork has been selected for numerous juried shows in Texas, including the 2017 Texas National Show at Cole Art Center in Nacogdoches, the 2018 and 2017 Assistance League of Houston Celebrates Texas Art Show at Williams Tower Gallery, and the 2016 and 2017 Rising Eyes of Texas Shows at Rockport Art Center. Notable jurors that have selected my work include Benito Huerta, Clint Willour, D.M. Allison, and Jose Esparza Chong Cuy.

Caldera continues to create two dimensional, photo and collage based artwork in her studio. In 2019 you can find her artwork in a group show at The Alexandria Museum of Art and her first career solo show opening in Houston in July.

Contact Caldera directly if you would like to arrange for a studio visit, request a commission, or inquire about a work. You can also follow along with her process and thoughts on Instagram.
