  • Biography

    British figurative and landscape painter Dawn Rodger was educated in London and Australia. Now based near the Taw Estuary in North Devon, she works from her studio drawing inspiration from its big skies and coastal waters.  


    Dawn’s artworks reflect her preoccupations with light, colour and an unobtrusive symbolism. Threads and folds of fabrics signify thoughts and emotions. Animals often symbolise absent friends and their characters. Beaches mark the space between the conscious world and unconsciousness. Stars and bokeh infer history, chronology and time. She uses textures and numerous layers of oil paint glazes to create depth and luminosity, instilling a sense of calm contemplation in the viewer. Having survived a life-threatening brain inflammation in her late twenties, Dawn’s paintings continue to offer her a secret world of colour and motion to explore untethered from the frustrations of daily life.


    Dawn is an elected full member of the Westward Ho! And Bideford Art Society and her works are held in private collections in the UK, US and around the world.  


    The artworks are signed on the front and a catalogued certificate of authenticity attached to the back. They are carefully packaged and sent fully insured via a tracked courier.
