Artisticdawning is an art studio and business launched in 2001 by Dawn DeBaere-Berg, a fine art painter based in Northern Virginia. Recently, Dawn decided to leverage her 20+ years of experience as an artist and teacher to expand into Live Event Painting for weddings and other special events, and to facilitate live, interactive Collaborative Painting. Learn more about these and other services below, visit the Online Gallery to view and purchase some of Dawn's artwork, and follow her on Facebook!
Live Wedding Painting, and other live event painting, is an increasingly popular way to capture a special moment in a unique way.
For those wanting a more interactive live experience, Collaborative Painting is another unique way to bring art to your event.
When circumstances don't allow painting at a live event, a great alternative is to create a painting from a photo!
Photos of weddings, family members, pets and homes are just some of the subjects that lend themselves to Photo Portraits.
Have an idea for a special project? From wall murals to keepsake boxes, a one-of-a-kind Commissioned Artwork can be designed to your specifications, or allow me to use my artistic instincts to create the perfect piece for you.
A Commissioned Artwork makes a great gift for friends, loved ones or even for yourself!
If you're shopping for a piece of art for your home or office (or for a gift!) visit my Gallery!
I've posted photos of many of my pieces and several of these original works are still available for purchase.
If you'd like a variation on something you see, let me know and I can probably create it!
