We have another talented artist joining our district! Dawn Winter comes to the RAD and the Asheville area from Austin, Texas after several years of working as an artist.
Dawn is a self-taught painter whose inspiration for her work comes from “both our natural environment (mountain and ocean views along with the wide open spaces of prairies and distant horizons) and my love of color and it’s ability to express emotions that are otherwise difficult to share with words.” In one word, she describes her paintings as “intuitive” and they subtly challenge viewers to look closely and allow themselves to be immersed in the intriguing sense of depth created by her subtle layering of colors and texture.
Her work can be found in private and corporate collections across North Carolina, Texas and California and has participated in a solo exhibition and many art exhibitions in Texas. Formerly available with the Austin Art Garage Gallery and Art Connection Gallery, her paintings are currently available with the Neiman Marcus, and Horchow collections, and previously with Anthropologie and the HGTV program Property Brothers.
“I love the sense of peacefulness and introspection experienced while painting. By using my palette knives and intuitive process to add layers, texture and depth, I easily lose track of time. I find myself feeling a sense of well-being and have discovered many life lessons while painting!”
