About Dawn Petrill

Hello!  My name is Dawn Petrill and I am an artist. It has taken me a long time to be able to say those words again.  Again? Yes.  I started off as an artist.  I went to the Cleveland institute of Art and got a degree in Illustration.  I was a freelance illustrator for a number of years supplemented with various odd jobs.  Then my husband and I began to raise a family and my artist endeavors slowed to a trickle for 10 years. But I raised (actually, am still raising) 3 happy kids, so my time wasn’t wasted! About 3 years ago, when my youngest daughter started school, I began to paint.  I fell in love with art all over again and decided to rededicate myself to being an artist. I started my business, Art At Dawn, where I’m striving to create a platform that encompasses my passion for art along with connections to the things that matter most.   My family and friends,  God, and the creative world surrounding me. xoxo Dawn  (Someday I’ll learn how to actually sign my name in cyberspace!)
