Dawn Emerson is a mixed media artist residing in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. After raising four children, Dawn went back to university to pursue her dream to be an artist and she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and a Bachelor of Education.

She facilitates many art projects and workshops with years of experience teaching art for School Districts, Kelowna Art Gallery, Senior Centers, Rotary Centre for the Arts, City of Kelowna, City of Vernon, and this year she received the 'Okanagan Art Educator Award'.

The rest of Dawn's time is spent painting in her studio, portraying her interpretation of the natural environment of both man and nature through her mixed media art. Dawn’s paintings have beautiful textures created with gels, paints, papers, and collected items related to the subject matter. She also hides images/prose within her paintings, creating another layer of subliminal messages. Her fresh, individual style creates paintings that come alive with an energetic and unique presence. Dawn Emerson’s artwork is represented in Elevation Contemporary Gallery in Canmore, Alberta and in Gallery Odin at Silver Star, BC. She has also had numerous art exhibitions throughout Western Canada. Check out her website at: www.dawnemerson.ca
