“Separated From The Herd” (original painting and prints of historical rendering of Clovis culture mammoth hunt for a Nebraska Archeological Society event), Ron Martin: “It is difficult to convey how much I love this. You caught the spirit of the scene in a way that very few could have ever achieved.”
“From the first contact with Dawn until the graphics were done, everything was first class. I especially appreciated the preliminary drawings, and the progress updates which kept my excitement up. The work is great, the service was great, and if I ever need more graphics I will not consider anyone else for the work.” (Matt B.)

  1. It is my privilege to leave a testimonial for you! I have purchased silk scarfs, wine glass, you have done custom work of 2 of my furbabies on my 750 Honda motorcycle covers and then of course, I was lucky enough to purchase your custom 1100 Honda, not to forget the cook books and coloring books! I have even taken belly dance classes from you. I am so proud to call you my friend but aside from that, you are so talented, you truly have a gift and you share so easily….love all your work and your energy!

    1. Sweet Dianne, thank you for your kind comments, your enduring friendship, and your love! I don’t know what I would do without the support of amazing hearts like yours! LOVE YOU!

  2. I’ve bought ocean coloring books and a delightful wooden bowl from Dawn and loved them all! The coloring books were gifts that were well received and the wooden bowl had paintings of my two pups on it as a shared treasure for the wife and I.

    I love Dawn’s vibrancy for living and classy retro style! She is an experienced crafter and painter of great skill! <3

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words and the continued support, Hinsel-san! Geeksworldwide.com rules, but mostly, the miracle-working Hinsel part of it. 😉 Please give my regards to the Mrs!

  3. Dawn is such a beautiful person and artist, inside and out! If I lived closer I would definitely be drumming and dancing in her classes, but I love to collect her art work and look forward to seeing what she can “see” when she looks at a shabby little monkey pod piece. She never ceases to amaze me and she is the only artist that can make me “Squeeeee” myself! (inside joke) I love you Dawn!!!

    1. Oh, my word, I am so humbled by your sweet comments. I love you, my friend!! It’s the enthusiasm and support from client/friends like YOU that keep me excited about creating new things. Blessings to you, and Gratitude Attitude for YOU. 🙂 (And hahahaha on the “Squeeee” comment!) xo Dawn
