083: Dawn Tree—expressing joy and hope through abstract art

by | Aug 25, 2021

Dawn Tree calls herself an abstract folk artist, but she’s clear about the message she wants to share. On this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, Dawn shares her insights into racial and social justice and the hope she has that her art will have an impact on creating conversations that lead to understanding, acceptance, and healing.

Dawn started her career in journalism and graphic arts. She has moved toward abstract art in recent years and now devotes her creative energy to developing and expanding her technique.
