The Story of Me


Hello, and thanks for joining me!

My name is Dawn and I have been an Artist all of my life I just can’t stop creating!  I never stick to one style I just love to try it all!  It seems to happen at the beginning of every year, a wave of thoughts enters my mind and takes over.  I love trying new mediums in different ways never following the rules.  I am a rebel at heart. And I wouldn’t change  a thing.  

This year brings me into the world of Mixed media.  Layers of embellishments, textures and color.  Please feel free to comment with your thoughts and suggestions.  I just love to inspire and to be inspired!!!

 I was born and raised in a suburb outside of New York City. I received a BFA in Illustration at The School of Visual Arts. While living in Manhattan I worked for several textile companies, an artist representative (Until one day I snuck my portfolio in with the others, got hired for that job but got fired from the this one) and freelanced my art(the right way) for several more years.  I have owned businesses as a mural painter, a gallery owner and the owner of an interactive art studio called Painting ParTAY.    Now based on the mainland outside of Long Beach Island, NJ, I create beautiful works of Art full time.
