Instructor Dawn Daisley is an East End Arts faculty member focusing on printmaking. Dawn studied at Parsons School of Design where she believed graphics to be the visual language of her generation. She lived in the East Village in the 1970’s and viewed the pop art of that period as an ethnographer, trying to find parallels to her own experiences as a graphic designer. Dawn feels combining art, science and technology will be the future of artistic expression… art that speaks of a culture and its people. Dawn returned to school as a student at Pratt Institute for a BFA in Art & Design Education and found purpose, confidence and self-awareness in her abilities as a learner, teacher, and artist. She continued to complete an MA in Studio Arts at Adelphi University. Her work combines her years of professional experience in graphics and communication with fine art esthetics, creating a unique perspective.
