Dawn’s current work focuses on expression as a source of freedom and joy. When she paints, she focuses her attention inward, allowing all things that clutter her mind to fall away. Layer upon layer, as the paint builds, and the colors move and blend, fear and confusion fall away. Often a phrase will come to her as she paints, and she repeats it like a mantra. Digging deep, she searches for unexplored beauty and a deeper sense of love and connectedness with the world around her.
