Dawn Diamantopoulos

WHAT’S INSPIRING YOU THESE DAYS?
two things: capturing the changing qualities of light and color and breaking some (self-imposed) rules.
 

WHAT’S YOUR IDEA OF PERFECT HAPPINESS?
a good night’s sleep and a cup (or pot) of coffee, lots of time for artmaking, and seeing some kindnesses
 

WHAT SCARES THE HELL OUT OF YOU?
My older son has down syndrome and autism and I worry what will happen when I cannot take care of him any longer.
 

WHAT ARTISTS HAVE INSPIRED YOU THE MOST?
Matisse has long been a favorite for his ambiguity of space, recently Rothko for his layering.
 

WHAT ONE THING WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOURSELF?
My social awkwardness when I have to make small talk with strangers.
 

WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK OF BROOKLYN?
Pratt! I’m a proud alum! I have a BFA in Fine Arts-printmaking. Brooklyn will always have a piece of my heart.
