About The Artist
My name is Dawn Shade and I live in the beautiful rolling hills of Devon with my husband Richard and my little Son Hopi.
I started my creative journey when I was 18 years old when I discovered the camera and went on to do a Degree in Photography and Visual Communications in Birmingham UCE. But it wasn't until I birthed Hopi that I started to paint! He was one year old when I had a play with my mums paints and discovered a passion for it. In this truly expansive time I rediscovered a part of my self again. I give thanks to Hopi who came into my life bringing theses gifts along with his incredible self. I also give thanks to motherhood which gave me the
determination and ability to be able do SO much more within a short period of time!
I work at home in my little studio in the mornings whilst Hopi is at Kindergarten. I am blessed to be surrounded by nature and beautiful countryside to constantly inspire my art. My start to life was very different to the life I lead now... I lived in inner city with my mother in high rises flats until I was 15 years old. This beginning to life shaped a passion in me about the importance of well being, children's development through play & nature and living a balanced organic life with the environment. All theses element come through my creations and my desire is to pass this on within my art that goes out into the world.
