Dawn is a self-taught artist with midwestern sensibilities and a sophisticated eye for style. Founder of NOTRE MONDE, she draws her inspiration not only from her extensive travels all over the world, but also from her design projects in Europe. She now lives in North Carolina. She is inspired by the things around her. Whether it is a song, a book, fashion, the texture of a painting or people she loves, her surroundings are her source of inspiration. She selects things that speak directly to her, lending authenticity to her work. The NOTRE MONDE brand is a direct expression of Dawn’s immersion into various cultures and the diversely meaningful ways in which people embrace the good life.
