Dawn Rudd

Dawn Rudd: Inspired by emotion, rhythm, nature and ritual; contemporary abstract painter, photographer and poet Dawn Rudd creates with passion and vitality creating work that both engages and transfixes her audience. Born in Connecticut, nurtured by a family of musicians, activists, writers, artists and educators, Dawn studied at UMASS/Amherst and Parsons The New School for Design in New York City before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area. Although best known as an abstract expressionist painter and collagist, Dawn is a published writer and former editor who writes with urgency and intensity. Both subtle and profound, this prolific artists’ body of work is alive, complex and arresting.
