Inspired by sound, emotion, movement and ritual; contemporary

abstract artist Dawn Rudd creates with emotional honesty and passion. Born in Connecticut, nurtured by a family of musicians, writers, artists and educators, Dawn studied at The University of Massachusettes at Amherst and Parsons School of Design in New York City before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area. She is an abstract expressionist; a gestural painter, collagist and photographer using intricate layering, bold splashes of color and merging of images to create a unique urgency and intensity. Dawn’s art can be found in collections throughout the United States.
