Dawn Stringer

Dawn L. Stringer is a self-taught Non-Representational Abstract Artist. Her paintings are primarily acrylic on canvas or wood and uses various mediums to create depth and texture, She describes her work as "beautifully organized chaos and is created in attempt to stimulate the viewer's imagination and challenge their perception through the use of rich colors and textures. I'd like the viewer to simply get lost within the beauty of the paintings" She finds inspiration from well-known artists Gerhard Richter, Jean Michel Basquiatt and Norman Lewis. Her work is also influenced by pop culture, music and overall beauty within the environment.
