About Dawn Palmer
Dawn studied design, textiles, sculpture and painting and received BFA, from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a MS in Human Factors & User Experience Design, in information technology from Rochester Institute of Technology. As a consultant, She has helped people experience design and the many benefits visual design has on livable, functional, products & curated spaces. While an active art consultant, she continues to create her own work.
Working in corporate & private sectors she has honed an understanding of art & design, with an "everything in moderation approach". Dawn has a keen eye which enables her to implement sustainably - she utilizes pre-existing objects in order to "pare down" one object to highlight the richness of simplicity in another. With Human Factors & User Experience Design, she went on to aid in the design of products in both creative and R&D departments. Helping walk people through thought processes and usability of products within the information architecture framework, she translates this approach helping people to see the potential of working spaces that ultimately feel like home.
"It pleases me to assist anyone to re-envision their space or collections which are personal extensions of their being. I am a big advocate for light, small gardens, and bringing nature indoors. I worked at a herb farm very young and had the whole greenhouse to myself and the garden task of paring down to see the architected formal garden, this task otherwise known as 'weeding'. Landscape & nature are substantial backdrops to my design when envisioning a space. I am an obsessive gardener with constant consideration of low maintenance greenery, "indoor/outdoor plant scapes" that enhance choices of art & furnishings and breath life into any space"
"Dawn is someone you call when you want something done and need to know it will be done with creative energy and attention to detail. She is a wonderful artist and has tremendous knowledge of the world of art, but her best quality is her delightful demeanor. A day that is lucky enough to have some Dawn in it, is a wonderful day!" She would be an asset to any place lucky enough to get her."
"Her talent is not only measurable in the output she delivers, but in the way she does it. She always keeps you at ease, whilst juggling stressful situations. She always has a solution, when others bring up the complaints or problems or concerns. And most of all – she is an absolutely joy to work with and gets the job done!"
