Dawn Steeves is a visual artist based in Fredericton, New Brunswick. She practices portraiture and figurative painting in oils and makes drawings in black ink and Conté, which she used in her latest paintings and drawings to explore early childhood memories.
Dawn’s most recent solo exhibition Structure: An Exploration of Memory/Une exploration de la memoire, was shown at the Andrew & Laura McCain Gallery, in Florenceville-Bristol, New Brunswick. Also in 2019, she created a public mural for Flourish Fest, an annual interdisciplinary music and art festival held in Fredericton.
Dawn’s art is a favourite of private art collectors and her work has been collected by schools in New Brunswick through the Art in the Schools program funded by Canada 150 in 2018. The following year she received a Creation Grant from the New Brunswick Arts Board (ArtsNB) for her project, Paper Dolls, which was completed in 2020.
