Artist Statement, Bio and CV

Dawn Gettig,
Currently lives and works in Northeastern Ohio, USA

Artist Statement:
Creating intuitive art is a journey of passion for me. It is a continually evolving process reflecting my life path and experience of nature and the world around me. I continually try to express myself in a deep, organic and original way.

I apply acrylic paint or ink to canvas, wood or paper. I often use water color pencils, paint-pens, decorative paper and other medium that inspires me. My process is intuitive. My style is a blend of whimsical, folk, fantasy, and abstraction inspired by nature, my dreams, my imagination and the mystery and magic of life.

Dawn Gettig is a mixed media artist. She has studied art for years. She continues to explore different expressions of art. Dawn lives an artful life in Kirtland, Ohio with her husband, two daughters and two cats.
