About Dawn Richerson





We are here for the experience of life itself. That's what I know for sure. My life and work are informed by the journey we are making together. Life extends its invitation. I intend to say YES and to be on the way, ever in formation with the wonder of this world. This message is at the heart of Lifeseeds, a core curriculum to come to LIFE + Live In Full Expression entrusted to me to share with you!

Where in the World Is Dawn? Why does she wear funny hats?

Maybe it was moving every two years during my growing up years. Maybe it was the larger-than-life story that was alive in me. Or the way I see life as an adventure. Whichever it is, I love to be on the way! The photo above was taken in Barcelona. I'm in my Irish wool sweater and silly hat because they make me happy!!. I explored Spain, France and later England after living in Ireland. Before catching a flight stateside. I stopped to take a quick snap of me in the glass window because... 

      Well, why not? I hope you find joy in the moments, too!

Dawn hiking at Glacier National ParkI spent 5 years in wander-wonder mode, exploring the heart of America, particularly national parks and the Southwest, then haded north to Glacier in Montana (that's sunburned me after a glorious hike). Wow, what a day! Silly hats, like slightly off-kilter whimsical doodles and designs, are my signature style ;) The soul of the places I visited connected me to what was alive in me and I started painting to share the wonder and mystery I found on the way.

      What brings you to life? What is alive in you?

Wonder. Mystery. Grace. These are the things that make me fall in love with life.

So many things inspire me, especially the wonder and beauty hidden in plain sight. And how funny we travelers are about the little moments of joy that come from the grace that rises up to meet us on the way. I am grateful for my art and soul life, filled with soul-inspired living every day and hope you connect with what is alive in you through the art & soul gifts available through New Dawn Studios. 

I'll meet you on the way,

Dogsitting Petsitting Housesitting Reviews and RecommendationsP.S. Woof. Woof. Did I mention that I love animals? I travel the world, creating art and taking photos, exploring nearby nature and culture, following the call of my wild soul. Along the way, I offer housesitting and petsitting services. I've cared for dogs and cats; chickens, donkeys and geese; geckos, hamsters and guinea pigs across the US and across the seas. I have profound love and gratitude for all the furry friends I've met along the way. And the humans too! Reach out to discuss a stay in your neck of the woods.
