About Us

Hello!, my name is Dawn and this is my dad Don.

Dad moved in around covid time for me to look after him instead of the other way around so MANY years ago.

I have been teaching and producing art for many years for both children and adults.  The nickname "Sunshine" from the kids due to my. . . I guess a cherry disposition and because of my first name.  The name Sunshine Dreams Art Center comes from my daydreaming of using my art to support myself and my father.  All of the proceeds of this website go directly to help support dad and I so I can stick around and give him better care.

For 11 years prior to dad moving in, my little dog Cupcake and I traveled throughout parts of the country painting VERY elaborate and sparkly works of art on kids faces as well as adorning folks with henna tattoos. What adventures we had leaving happy kids trailing behind!  Shortly after that I opened the art center.

Life has changed things making traveling so far something of the past but when things get tough, you reinvent yourself!  Now I am SO EXCITED to offer my art on various merchandise such as blankets, coffee mugs, T's, Hoodies, wall art and more!

Please take your time and shop and recommend a friend!  These items make great gifts and offer people a chance to own a gorgeous piece of art at an affordable cost.  I still offer original works of art, custom pet portrait paintings and am available for booking for art classes, private lessons, face painting and henna gigs as well so don't hesitate to reach out by messaging or emailing me.

Dad and I appreciate all of you!  Thanks for stopping by!
