Dawn Sutherland



Dawn Sutherland is a painter of southwest landscapes. A teacher in her first life, a college counselor in her second, she has been a painter since 2001. Dawn is a founding member of Arizona Plein Air Painters, and 2019 is her sixth year participating in the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art. “Painting outdoors, en plein air, uniquely captures the depth, definition, and feeling of the landscape before me,” she says. “I feel there is almost always a near-perfect composition provided by nature.”
