Dawn Hopkins is an Artist residing in Valley City, Ohio. She paints in Acrylics and much of her inspiration comes from nature and capturing moments in time such as a sunset or a butterfly fluttering over a leaf. She is especially drawn to painting flowers as she loves the nuances of their many colors and intricate organic shapes. Her intention is not to copy nature but to draw the viewers attention to the beauty she sees in it. Dawn has always admired the work of artist Georgia O'Keeffe. She really resonates with O'Keeffe who said she was drawn to paint flowers because of their natural beauty.
Dawn currently paints and teaches art at JoAnn Depolo Studios & Gallery in North Olmsted, Ohio. She is an award winning artist and her work has been shown at galleries and public buildings in the Greater Cleveland Area.
