Dawn’s artistic odyssey commenced in the heart of Albany, Georgia, where she found herself sketching rudimentary floorplan diagrams within the comforting confines of her childhood home. These humble beginnings ignited her fascination with the visceral and emotional dimensions of space, ultimately guiding her towards the realms of interior design and architecture in both her academic pursuits and professional endeavors. However, her time in the design industry led her to a profound realization: she yearned for a more dynamic and authentic means of creation. Thus, she embarked on a quest that would eventually lead her to the captivating world of watercolor painting, drawn to its patient and intimately expressive nature, allowing her to explore boundlessly.
Dawn is an abstract artist who seeks to express the nuances of human vulnerability through painting. Drawing from her background in design as well as her innate love for narrative, she communicates through the subjects of light, layering and space. Her primary medium is watercolor for its ability to be both ethereal and tangible resulting in works that are stirring and reflective.
Dawn’s unceasing curiosity about the intricate interplay between spatial design and the profound subtleties of human emotion finds its voice through her unique approach to abstraction. Deliberately diverging from conventional watercolor techniques (and occasionally paper itself), she forges a deep connection with the emotional landscape. Seeking harmony and composition within these spatial complexities, she interprets emotions by crafting intense and saturated movements that harmonize with ethereal and tranquil ones, guided by her acute and intuitive discernment.
With each meticulously conceived, original artwork, Dawn aspires to convey a captivating and evocative narrative, one that unravels the beauty and profundity inherent in the tapestry of life experiences that we all share.
