Rebekah Dawn is an internationally known artist living on a botanical sanctuary in Mulberry Grove, IL with her sweetheart and their three boys. The inspiration for her work is deeply rooted in the soils of her gardens and favorite wild places. Rebekah looks forward to sharing with the Macoupin Art Collective community what she has learned in her more than 20 years of shaping clay. Ceramic art is joyful, therapeutic, and cathartic. We are going to have so much fun.
