Dawn's interpretation of formal elements such as color, shape, balance, depth, and composition has been strongly influenced by over twenty years experience practicing interior design. The paintings take you on a journey though the eyes of a colorist, with an inspired marriage of calming harmony and delightful surprise. " Color, energy, emotion and movement are the foundation of my visual style and intuitive approach to painting. I love the fluid materiality of my paints and the process of transforming flat surfaces into dynamic, layered compositions through the interaction of color. My paintings blend elements of nature with abstraction as a means to create visual poetry. Inspired by changing light, movement and forms in the landscape."
"I consider myself a painter of the natural world, my work is infused with this beauty. For me, painting is not something to do, it is rather a way to be."
"I have many interests that help to inspire my work. I love to sail, ski, run, ride horses, snorkel, spend time with my two dogs, travel, and many other outdoor activities that make me want to get in the studio and paint nature in all its forms."
