About the Artist:
Dawn has worked as a freelance artist and designer since 2001. She ran her own mural and faux painting business for 8+ years while living in New York and continues to work as a website and graphic designer, here in Florida, for her business DPK Graphic Design for 10+ years.
Dawn is also a mom to 4 children and over the years painted their faces for fun. It wasn’t until she was asked to paint at several church events that she discovered a whole new medium for sharing her art with her community.
“The smiles on the kids faces when they look into the mirror brings so much joy to my heart.”
As with all of her artistic endeavors, Dawn strives to maintain both professionalism and a high quality of work.
