About Dawn Rodger

 
 
  • Biography
    Painting makes me happy. I become lost in a world of colour and texture. The frustrations and compromises of everyday life melt away. Hopefully people also experience that same sense of calmness and stillness by having a piece of my art on their wall. My artworks are in private collections in the UK, the US and around the world.

    I was born and brought up in England, apart from a brief few years in Australia. I think the contrast between these two countries has informed my fascination with colour and light.

    I usually work in oils. I love the smell of linseed oil, the way the paint feels as it smears and the vibrant effects on the colours that glazing can produce. I always use highly pigmented paints mainly Michael Harding or Old Holland and usually assemble and prime the canvases myself to ensure that the pictures will be a good long term investment for people. I also protect the pictures with a layer of retouching varnish to keep the colours vivid and rich.
