Dawn is a self-taught illustrator and freelance artist with an affinity for all things paper. Her career in making pictures books has only just begun, but she has been cutting out her intricate and colorful illustrations for nearly 16 years. After a recent move from Maine to Hawaii, Dawn is learning to adjust to life in the sun and always wearing sunscreen! She continues to dream of new projects from the comforts of her home studio while she awaits the publication of her first picture book, to be released this fall!
