My name is Dawn Nelson.
I live in Jamaica Plain, MA and have my studio in North Adams, MA. I happily share my home with my cats and my housemate.
In 2014 I retired from a wonderful 30-year career as a middle school Art Teacher.
I grew up in the Midwest. My childhood homes were outside of Chicago, and in southern Wisconsin.
I have a B.F.A. from Illinois Wesleyan University, and a MEd from Lesley University.
I have been a working artist for my entire adult life. Since retirement my artwork has moved into new directions taken on greater intensity.
I am very excited about the new directions I am taking.
I hope that you will like it, too!
