Dawn Verhey is a freelance artist in Redding, Ca, where she resides with her husband of 18 years and their five children.

She grew up knowing she was creative, but did not fully venture into the creative arts until 2009, when she began designing jewelry under the business name, Yellow Reformation.

In the fall of 2015, during a three month breather, she fell headlong into painting and she has been painting since.

Although water is her most cherished medium, she is also very fond of acrylics, pastels, pencils and markers, but she likes to remain open-minded.  

She is a resolute believer that breakthrough happens when you lose the rules. Dawn would classify herself as an abstractive expressionist.
