This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for pastel paintings ranging in size from large scale to miniature, Dawn Emerson's specialties are animals---chickens, buffalo, donkeys and especially horses.  She says: "My heart starts beating faster when I see a horse moving. When I see that beautiful motion, I want do do something with that. . . .They tell stories in their eyes or in their exchange---in the tension between figures." (26) 

Working occasionally from photographs, she also does human figure subjects.   Often she is attracted by the fleeting moment such as a person simply walking down a street.  She believes that every person has a story to tell, and that capturing some of those stories is one of her missions as an artist.

Emerson teaches life drawing classes at a local community college.  Originally from New England, she moved West, first to Utah and then to Bend, Oregon where she settled.  She has been interested in painting since childhood when she lived in Lynn, Massachusetts and took art lessons.  Many years later, in 1997, she studied with Harley Brown in a pastel workshop, and from that time she was committed to using pastels.
