Announcement   WELCOME! to my online art gallery store: Dawn Chandler Studio
I am an artist — a painter — living in Santa Fe New Mexico. Raised in the northeast, I first came to New Mexico as a teenager, to backpack in New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo mountains at the Philmont Ranch up in Colfax County. The moment I first smelled desert sage I fell deeply, rapturously in love with the Land of Enchantment — never mind the first time I witnessed a desert thunder storm move in, or watched lightening dance across the distant mesas…. [Read: SWOON].

The landscape of New Mexico has been a major focus of my art ever since, both “traditionally” and “abstractly.” My traditional landscapes are usually in oil and often done en plein air. My “abstract” landscapes combine passages of recognizable landscape with abstract elements as well as text (hence my term “textual landscapes”) and are created with oil and mixed media. The words in my textual landscapes stem from my own writings and reflections.

Further, I create other mixed media paintings that are a bit harder to categorize.... Often they incorporate figures, birds (my beloved cranes in particular), trees... photography. These are celebrations of life and things I notice, the things I think about, the stuff of dreams....

Whichever style you prefer — more traditional or more abstract; oils or mixed media; large or small; boisterous or whispered — I hope you enjoy delving into my creative world.
I delight in talking about my work, so if you have any questions about my paintings, please do get in touch.

Thank so much you for spending a bit of time here perusing my creations!

Blessings to you!

About

Paintings Inspired by the New Mexico Landscape & Beyond

It all started on a small parcel of lush and fragrant New Jersey woodlands, where, as a young girl, artist Dawn Chandler first began to explore nature. Childhood camping & backpacking trips throughout New England with her family furthered her love of the outdoors. But it was an intense backpacking trip at the age of 15 at New Mexico’s Philmont Ranch — followed by many more summers there teaching backpacking skills to Boy Scouts — that sealed her destiny: After earning her MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania, Dawn strapped her enormous oak painting easel to the roof of her Jeep Cherokee and drove cross-country to make New Mexico her home.

That was September of 1994, and Dawn has been celebrating her love of the outdoors — especially New Mexico and the American West — ever since. From her “traditional” plein air and studio landscapes, to her uniquely visioned “textual landscapes” merging traditional landscape with passages of text and abstraction, Dawn’s rapture for the great outdoors is without question.

Blessed with fans, followers and collectors who delight in her passion for landscape, Dawn is honored to have her paintings gracing the walls of countless private art collections throughout the country. She has been further blessed with opportunities to “escape the maddening world” and focus on painting without distraction at creative residency programs from Maine (Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture) to Wyoming (Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts), to Oregon (Playa Creative Residency Program).

Beyond painting, Dawn has a voracious appetite for reading (she’s kept a list since the age of 14 of every book she’s ever read), writing (blogging, poetry and the lost art of hand-written letter-writing), pursuing an active plant-based lifestyle (her salad-making skills are nothing short of wizardry), and, of course, hiking and exploring. Among her life’s crowning achievements thus far is having bike-camped across much of Mexico (yes, the country!) and, in celebration of her 50th birthday, solo-backpacking the length of Vermont (274 miles) from Massachusetts to Canada. By her 6th decade she aims to have completed all 2000+ miles of the Appalachian Trail, among other endeavors.

Welcome to my richly colored creative world...

Come, breathe deeply and immerse yourself in the American landscape....
For here you'll find an array of 'traditional' oil paintings of mesas and mountains, cloudscapes and canyons.

Here too, you'll find more personal 'abstract' interpretations of journeys across the land via my unique 'textual landscapes' combining passages of semi-abstract landscapes merged with ghosted words & text....

Regardless of which speak to you, I hope you enjoy exploring the landscape through my eyes.

Blessings ~
