Hello! My name is Dawn and I am an artist.
It has taken me a long time to be able to say those words again. Again?
Yes. I started off as an artist. I went to the Cleveland institute of Art and got a degree in Illustration. I was a freelance illustrator for a number of years supplemented with various odd jobs. Then my husband and I began to raise a family and my artist endeavors slowed to a trickle for 10 years.
But I raised (actually, am still raising) 3 happy kids, so my time wasn’t wasted!
About 3 years ago, when my youngest daughter started school, I began to paint. I fell in love with art all over again and decided to rededicate myself to being an artist.
I started my business, Art At Dawn, where I’m striving to create a platform that encompasses my passion for art along with connections to the things that matter most. My family and friends, God, and the creative world surrounding me.
I am happy and blessed to be able to be to say that I am an artist, and to say it with pride.
To those of you who have followed me on this journey thus far I say, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love and support. I couldn’t have done it without you!
To those who are meeting me for the first time. Welcome. I hope you’ll stay awhile and get to know me. And if you like what you see, please let me know so that I can get to know you as well.
xoxo Dawn (Someday I’ll learn how to actually sign my name in cyberspace!)
