Hi! I am Dawn Petrill. I have a passion for discovering inspiration in life and translating it into art.  My work is colorful, textural, and full of spirit.  I also love to write and give creative insights through my weekly blog and monthly newsletters. Please take a look around and get to know my art and me.  If you like what you see let me know, so that I can get to know you and share my world of Art At Dawn.

“If I were called upon to define briefly the word Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.”
