Pop-up cards
ana's career has been long and varied. She designed and created paper engineering for dozens of pop-ups used in greeting cards, children's books, and as a special feature in address books, diaries, and stationery. These paper inventions have been recognized for their creativity by being featured in book, magazine and newspaper articles as well as in a University course on pop-ups.

An illustrator for well over a dozen children's books, Dana has given the characters she created for some of her books, a new life in Stanley lunch box for Elite Gift Boxesvarious Stanley Cat Pins for Elite Gift Boxesproducts. The "Little Teddy" character from "Midnight Teddies" became the inspiration for a whole line of ice cream wafers and cones for Marcantonio Foods.

Stanley, the kitten featured in "To Mum with Love" and "I Love You,Grandpa," can be seen on his own lunch box, a series of tin boxes, and in charming badges featuring Stanley and his favourite toy mouse.

Dana has expanded her art into everyday life with designs for household items ranging from aprons and kitchenware for Dodo Designs, to pottery and tableware for J. Luber, Switzerland. One can cook the morning's egg protected by apron and mitt; sit down to enjoy a mug of coffee with breakfast while reading a book to amuse the children; then send them off to school with a lunch box and on their lapels their favorite "Stanley" character badge; all the while using products of Dana's design.

In tribute to early tin toys, she created inventive tin boxes in shapes as varied as cats, dogs, teddy bears, china cups with saucers, beds, houses, baskets, and suitcases. Many of Dana's designs have been included in shows at the Victorian & Albert Museum, Somerset House and the Design Centre of Britain as well as received various awards.

Dana has also designed some of the display packaging used for her products.
