About the Author

Dawn Summerall is the author/artist of the Zen drawing series Fast Freehand Fills. She currently lives in Fargo, ND but spent most of her life split between south Florida and Tennessee. She has two children and one grandchild. Dawn attended college for several years and majored in Fine Arts with a concentration in jewelry making. But while she had a passion for drawing and art history, she did not like the way the studio classes were taught nor did she agree with putting a grade on art. Dawn thinks art is about self-expression and not technical supremacy.

Dawn left college and began creating art independently for the past 20 years. She began publicly showing her work and pursuing art professionally after her marriage broke up in 2008. Dawn often displays her Zen drawings in gallery shows with the Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists group. She has also created up-cycled art for the Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity's silent charity auctions. Dawn is also a member of an international Art Charms group that creates wildly creative mixed media jewelry.

But above all else, Dawn loves to draw patterns and black lines. It is an obsession for her. Expressing her self though black line art is her greatest passion in a life of many passions. She began drawing in this style in the 1980's when she and her best friend Missy Allyn were in high school together. It started out as small doodles on notebooks and progressed to large scale tributes to whatever was important in life at the time: boyfriends, rock bands, tarot cards, etc. To Dawn, drawing is journaling and meditation through art. When she draws she is in a place of timeless awareness. Dawn feels the process of creating is more important than the finished piece.
