Dawn Steeves is a visual artist based in Fredericton, New Brunswick. She practices portraiture and figurative painting in oils, also drawing objects in black ink, Conté and charcoal. In her latest work Dawn uses this media to explore her memories of early childhood.
In 2019 her most recent solo exhibition, Structure: An Exploration of Memory/Une exploration de la memoire, was shown at the Andrew & Laura McCain Gallery, Florenceville-Bristol, New Brunswick. Also in 2019 she created a public mural for Flourish Fest, an interdisciplinary music and art festival held in Fredericton. She will produce a new large-scale work for Flourish this year.
Dawn’s work has been collected by schools in New Brunswick through Art in the Schools program funded by Canada 150 in 2018, in addition to private collectors. She received a Creation grant from the New Brunswick Arts Board (artsNB) in 2019 for her project, Paper Dolls, which will be completed in 2020.
