"My paintings emerge from intimate outdoor observations and are influenced by many years of watercolor painting. I am inspired by nature, and informed by abstraction. I seek to capture a mood by layering transparent colors over transparent colors. The energy of the landscape and its inhabitants is communicated through calligraphic line and brushwork.
My recent landscapes reflects my desire to celebrate how nature can instill serenity. I seek to create work which reflects the quiet offered by nature in our noisy world."
Dawn Marie Rozzo has lived in Raleigh, NC for the past 20 years and has been a working artist and art educator for over 30 years. She grew up in southeastern Pennsylvania, where she spent much of her childhood exploring the hills, creeks and farmland surrounding her home. This landscape, the North Carolina seacoast, and her extensive garden, informs her art-making. When she is not working in her home studio, she is outside in the garden, or taking a walk in fields near her home. She lives with her husband and two nosey cats.
"If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere." Vincent Van Gogh
