Dawn Richards

My work is predominantly inspired by the world around me, every day there is something visual, spiritual, emotional, audible, that leaves me eager to interpret it through my art.

My style of work bounces between both abstract and representational presentation and I mostly choose to use a limited palette with the notion that less is more, and experiment with contrast, value and colour to express the feeling I want to give to the viewer.

Because my work is executed through emotion, each piece portrays my personal journey, sometimes sentimental, sometimes solemn, sometimes reflective, sometimes inquisitive, sometimes carefree, unravelling itself on the canvas like an open book, ready to captivate the viewer and invite them to see their own story.
