“ Reminding one another of the dream that each of us aspires to may be enough for us to set each other free.” - Antoine De Saint-Exupery
Dawn has relocated to St Petersburg, FL. She is following her instincts and inspiration to evolve with the growing artist community in the city. She is currently teaching Experimental Printmaking and Intro to Graphic Design as an adjunct Professor at Eckerd College. Dawn believes combining art, science, and technology will be the future of artistic expression…art that speaks of a culture and its people.
Dawn’s early life was on the South Shore of Long Island. At a young age, she established water, boating, beach environs, and natural habitats important to her development. She relocated to Manhattan to enroll at Parsons School of Design in Graphic and Communication Arts in her early twenties, believing graphic arts was the visual language of her generation. She views current visual literacy and visual references in our daily lives combined with instant information retrieval and technology significant to visual arts and they are being defined and re-defined with new avenues for expression.
When Dawn returned to school as an older student, it was one of her most meaningful decisions. Pratt Institute is where she found purpose, confidence, and self-awareness of her abilities as a learner, teacher, and artist. The program was demanding and at the same time, the faculty were supportive and inspiring. She felt enlightened by art history, philosophies, and the history of education. The combination of a MA in Studio Arts, a BFA in Art & Design Education, and Communication Arts combined with years of professional experience in the graphics and communication field gives her work as a fine artist a unique perspective. Printmaking is Dawn’s current venue for artistic expression. She is excited about finding new opportunities to use various materials and techniques that can produce endless variations.
