This ornament was just as perfect as the picture! We love it, and the shop was total pleasure to work with. I messed up the shipping address, and she dealt with everything with total class, and generosity.

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

Dawn's focus is primarily on ocean-themed work, especially in her painted bowls, but 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 has not stopped since! In fact, 2016 was her 40th Art-iversary! Her art, music, dance, and love of the ocean blend in interesting ways, and she is inspired by the colors of nature's patterns, tropical fish, henna designs, aboriginal art and music, retro design, exotica, and ocean waves.
From Dawn: "Find time to play and begin your dreams! Say 'I love you'. Eat an orange mindfully. Make your life a prayerful dance of peace. Breathe Gratitude Attitude. Pass It On." Learn more at
