“TO BE ABLE TO TRANSFORM MULTIPLE IMAGES INTO ONE AND CREATE AN ART PIECE…PRICELESS!”
About the Artist: I was born in Colombia, married the love of my life and raised two high-spirited and happy children. I live in Encinitas, one of the most exquisite cities inside America’s Finest City, San Diego, California.
Passion for photography was inspired by photographing my family. In 2011, I spent 5 weeks in India which allowed me to see the world differently through my camera lens. A new aesthetic was born within me; observation, color, humanity, life energy.
When I returned to San Diego, I toured every nook and cranny of my beloved city and beyond looking through this new prism. After some years and thousands of images collected, someone asked, what are you going to do with all those images? Well, in 2015 I was exposed to Photoshop Artistry with Sebastian Michaels and discovered the endless possibilities of using and incorporating my images into works of art. Inspiration and passion intensified. So my journey continues….
My desire through this medium “Digital Art” is to convey a personal expression more than a realistic rendering of a subject. I love “storytelling” through my art. I use Photoshop to transform drawings and my photography into many different styles of art. It can mimic different mediums – from acrylics to oil and pastels. Just as an artist uses a brush, a sculptor uses clay, I as a digital artist, use a computer screen as my canvas to create…this enables me to explore my imagination in infinitude.
Above is Trombone Fourth of eight Silhouette series. I’m fascinated by Tonal Value, it is an artist prize possession of artistic mastery. This art piece reflects my tonal awareness.
“To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts – such is the duty of the artist.” -Robert Schumann

Opening Artist Reception
Third Exhibition @ Blade 1936
Dawn Tappen is an abstract painter who lives and works in Oceanside, CA. She received her B.A. at California State University of Northridge. Initially planning to pursue illustration, she spontaneously took an abstract painting class and became captivated with the freeing process of discovering the unknown, by layering and excavating paint to allow her creations to unearth and emerge in an organic process. With no expectation of the outcome, Dawn makes marks and layers, choosing colors intuitively as she allows her paintings to come to life. Her choices of mark and color are made in the moment, and even if not a completely evident part of the finished result, are part of the beautiful end creation in all of her work.
Ms Tappan has always been fascinated with nature. Taking adventures into the woods, turning over stones and collecting the creatures that were underneath are some of early childhood memories. Dawn reflects, “I picked up and analyzed everything. The endless shapes and sizes never ceased to amaze me, but it was the color, the endless color that drew me in”.
Through many transparent layers of paint she creates the translucent colors found in nature. Then like an archaeologist excavating a new site, she sands into my painting to reveal the layers of color built up through time. Creating a window through which the viewer can enter into the history of the painting. “It’s like being a child all over again, the excitement of unearthing something new and beautiful.”

El Camino High School Student Art Reception
Friday, January 17, 2020
El Camino High School Art reveals to the viewer a collective and multifaceted prism of students’ imaginations in our very own community. Their art reaches out from the Valley to the Pier and beyond, to showcase fantasies, dreams, and wonders. The oeuvre of traditional two-dimensional images you are viewing, ranges in style, media, and dimensions. The constant of the work, however, is our students’ unlimited creative potential in a world of constant technological change and diminishing imagination.

El Camino High School
“The Art of Photography”
Here at El Camino High School, students begin their photography journey with the basics of taking pictures with cell phones. Afterwards, they start to explore taking high quality photos with digital cameras. Once they have a full understanding of how to capture an image with the correct exposure, contrast, composition and focus, the next step is to add creative edits. With the use of the latest Adobe Photoshop software, students gain new insights as they explore various editing techniques. By the year’s end students have completed numerous photographic works of art that share their creative voice.
