A Little Bit About Myself

. My name is Dawn Lewis and I’m a contemporary artist based in Cheshire. I live with my husband Steve and our 3 cats Hamish ,Hector and Misha.

 I have always been creative from childhood I just didn’t stop making things, drawing or painting huge murals on my bedroom wall .

I left school and went on to study at Northwich College of Art, after completing my ground and foundation course I carried on to Liverpool Poly studying Fine Art .

My career has taken me in all directions over the years but my love and passion for Art has always been there and probably even more so as I have got older .

I am inspired by nature, animals and I am crazy about cats …most people know me as the Crazy Cat Lady !

Working in acrylic ,watercolour and mixed media my work is quite distinctive and stylized,with a love of colour, texture and sparkle so there is lots of glitter involved ! I find it adds a magical quality to the artwork bringing it alive making it glisten ,sparkle and change colour in the light , I am covered in glitter and paint most of the time ! I also love using metallic paints to highlight, give depth ,shine and dimension.

I have recently started to teach art ,so if you like my style and would like to learn  new painting skills  please get in touch ,I am running friendly 2 hours classes in Warrington 

All my paintings are available to buy in various options ,Giglee or canvas prints , greeting cards . and also printed onto gift products such as coasters and bags.

Hope you love my work as much as I do creating it .
