About EclecticDawnArts

Sales 318
On Etsy since 2011
Video summary: With brush in hand, Dawn creates colorful joy for your home.

Creating colorful joy for your home...and for gift giving!

Dawn's forte is ocean-themed work. Her art, music, dance, and love of the ocean blend in interesting ways, as she is inspired by the colors of nature's patterns, tropical fish, henna designs, aboriginal art and music, retro design, exotica, and ocean waves.
In addition to her bowl art, she also creates murals, wall art surfboards, mermaid shell crowns, pyrography ornaments, "Shell Magic" jewelry, canvas works (dolphins, pets, birds, flowers, turtles), upcycled painted items, painted retro purses, silk mandala scarves, and more! If an idea is sparked, she rolls with it!
Dawn sold her first commissioned art piece as a teen, and she's not stopped since (2016 was her 40th Art-iversary)! From Dawn: "Eat an orange mindfully. Make your life a prayerful dance of peace. Breathe Gratitude Attitude. Pass It On." Learn more at
