Born in 1972, Dawn Blair is an artist who has always had a passion for stories. She finds her inspiration in noble hearts and fantastic places, as well as exploring the magic of infinite possibilities.
During her childhood, if she wasnt on her father's ranch making up tales of princesses, unicorns, and faraway lands then she was sitting at her typewriter churning out manuscript pages for the hundreds of ideas running around in her head. She always had a love for colorful children's picture books, comic books, and cartoons, but she never imagined herself as an artist capable of visual storytelling.
In the last decade, her storytelling has opened up into several different mediums, including painting, airbrushing, graphic novels, and photography. Dawn has collected numerous awards for her art, including Best of Color Photography. Her artwork has been included in multiple invitational and juried art shows around Idaho and Utah and has been exhibited in a fundraiser collection for We Art Women in Boise, Idaho. She was the Featured Artist at the Twin Falls Art in the Park in 2012. She has sold paintings throughout the United States and to international collectors in Trinidad, Canada, and Australia. Her writing publications include a rebus story in Turtle Magazine for Preschool Children as well as articles for newspapers and special interest publications.
Dawn realizes she still has a lot to learn to master her craft, but doing the creative work proves to be the best teacher. She enjoys the continuous learning as well as discovering the work and techniques of other artists. She loves sharing her own experiences and hopes her art serves to uplift and inspire others to explore the adventure of their own lives. Dawn currently lives in Idaho, with her two teenage boys, two dogs, and two cats.
