Dawn Zimiles grew up in NY, and received a BFA in sculpture from Parsons School of Design in 1991. After graduating from college, she moved to San Francisco where, in addition to maintaining a studio practice focused mainly on oil painting, she pursued further studies in 3D computer graphics and the digital arts. In 2001, she moved back east and settled in Provincetown in her family's home previously occupied by her great Aunt and Uncle, both artists, who first came to Provincetown in the early 1950's. Currently Dawn works primarily in encaustics (a mixture of wax and resin), and oil paint, but on occasion experiments with the inclusion of digitally generated images and photography. The subjects of her work focus on the natural world.
