I’m Dawn Pedersen.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text dp_text_size=”md”]I have been a lifelong artist, and a lifelong animal lover as well. There aren’t very many art techniques I haven’t tried, or animals I don’t think are adorable. Yes, I even adore spiders.

I earned a bachelor of arts in studio art (emphasis on drawing and painting) from CSU Sacramento in 1998. I followed that up with a teaching credential in art, an MA in education, and an AS in biology.

I live in California with my husband, our young son, and our rotten but lovable tuxedo cat Meowse.

I look forward to working with you![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Contact” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fpaintedbydawn.com%2Fcontact%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Subscribe” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fpaintedbydawn.com%2Fsubscribe%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Order a Custom Pet Portrait” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fpaintedbydawn.com%2Fproduct-category%2Fcommissions%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
