Dawn DiCicco received her BFA at the University of Arizona after studying both fine arts and graphic design. She now lives in New Jersey and is a member of the Art Hive artists’ group in Red Bank. In 2011, Ms. DiCicco decided to concentrate on painting after working as a graphic designer. Her work is abstract with elements of collage mixed in. She is primarily inspired by the color, shapes, and light in nature. She has taken classes with James Kent at the Guild of Creative Art since 2011.
In 2018, she was awarded the Best Abstract prize from the Guild of Creative Art Annual Juried Show. From 2014 to 2018 her work was accepted into the Monmouth Museum Annual Juried Exhibit.
Ms. DiCicco has shown extensively throughout the central New Jersey region. She had a solo exhibition at the Hotel Tides in Asbury Park, showed at Gallery U in Westfield, and at the George Segal Gallery in Montclair in 2017. Along with three other artists, she was part of the “Something Wild”, at the Gallery at Thompson Park, NJ. Most recently, her work was accepted into “Journey”, at the Pollak Gallery, Monmouth University, in Long Branch NJ.
