Paintings by Dawna Barton are renowned for their impressionistic beauty and mastery of technique. Her sensitivity to nature shows through in fluid strokes of color, capturing the essence of individual elements and translating them into a magical whole. Dawna attributes her success to long hours of daily painting.
“The joy of painting is what motivates me. For me, the actual experience of working is more fulfilling than the result.”
Graduating with a degree in graphic design, Dawna worked as a graphic artist in her early career. She was gradually drawn into fine art where she excelled in both watercolor and oil
