During the Journey (Current Work)

Get to know Dawn

A Passion for Drawing

Gray Dawn Creations was founded in 1995 by Dawn Gray, and has been located in West Linn and Bend, Oregon and is now settled near Boise, Idaho. She earned her degree in Drawing from Portland State University in 1993.  Since then, Dawn has taught in school districts in Oregon and Idaho.  Dawn works extremely hard to help cultivate the inner artist in all of her clients. Dawn's lessons inspire and enhance everyone’s creative spark and spirit. 

Speaking / Training Background

During the late 90's, Dawn traveled the country speaking to a variety of businesses on personal development and sales while promoting well known speakers and authors, Jim Rohn and Brian Tracy.  This experience deepened Dawn's love for teaching, as well as her comfort working with small or large groups.

Testimonials from past Drawing Lessons.

My kids love her drawing lessons!! We look forward to it every year.

Aleza F.


We love Dawn! Her art classes are part of our summer routine. She is talented and is great with kids.

Tara S.


"It was a delight to work with Dawn to create a drawing of Kava, a special memory for my daughter-in- law. She kept me involved throughout the process, with periodic updates. Not only is the final product a testimony to her talent...her passion for the process is inspiring."

"We asked Dawn to draw a picture of our beloved cat, Guava, who died suddenly and way to young. Dawn did a great job capturing the essence of her personality and she took the time to draw her layered colors. Because of Dawn, we have a fantastic drawing to always remind us of our dear pet. Thank you, Dawn!"

Becky Gray


"I came to Dawn with an idea of creating a drawing of my Lebanese heritage. She incorporated my family into a 19th century setting and it turned out so beautiful!!! She poured out her heart and she was very patient with all our requests! She also went out of her way to meet me at Hobby Lobby and help pick out the perfect frame. I felt so happy with everything that I also enrolled my kids to take private classes with her! Thanks a million Dawn!!"

Rose Gebran


"I enjoy drawing graphic novel characters and technical, schematic images, but Mrs. Gray taught me how to challenge myself to try other styles of art drawing. She also taught me how to draw my characters by first looking inside the character...the physiology of how that character poses and how it may move and to practice drawing what's underneath. Mrs. Gray's patience and kind mentoring makes learning to draw an experience in which I thrive towards giving my best effort to promote my confidence in my personal abilities at my younger age."

"I really enjoyed taking lessons from Dawn.  She made it really easy to learn things that were originally difficult for me.  I really feel like she cared about my improvement in my drawings, and was encouraging.  I would recommend her."

Ava B. (14 year old student)


"Dawn sketched a beautiful picture of my sister’s dog who was incredibly special to my sister. The colored sketch looked just like Kubby. It brought tears to my eyes when I saw it. We had it matted and framed. It is incredible. I can’t wait to give it to my sister!!




Dawn is incredibly talented!"

"As a very special Teacher Appreciation gift, Dawn Gray sketched a beautiful picture of my son and his fiancé. She recreated a picture I provided for her with a black and white pencil sketch. It was 11” x 14” and absolutely gorgeous. The sketch looked just like the picture provided. I matted, framed and gifted this to my son and new daughter-in-law for their wedding. When they opened it, they cried (and so did I). This beautiful rendition of a beautiful couple hangs on their living room wall. I love looking at it when I visit their home."
