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.

 Now it's really done and I even have a title for it- Stopping By The Tranquil Waters. I've been videotaping as I've painted so look for a blogpost with it on my website coming soon! #painting #acrylicpainting #artatdawn #natureinspired #natureintensified #featuringmypup #tranquilwaters #finishedpainting
 A lazy Saturday night. Kids are all doing their own thing and giving me great material for a drawing. #lazysaturdays #sketch #sketchbook #draw #kids #drawing
 Visited the exhibit, Material Pulses; 8 Viewpoints at the Riffe Gallery in Columbus. Quilts on steroids! The one pictured is actually the backside of a hanging one. The picture doesn't do it justice. Amazing show going on only until July 16. #riffegallery #quilts #surfacedesign #quiltsonsteroids #columbusohio
 My 1st week of summer kids classes called Out of the Mist: Comic Book Heroes, Villans, and Fantasy. The students blew me away with their talent and imagination! #kidsartclass #artclass #comicsandfantasy #creativekids

“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.”
