Dawn HudsonA true Yorkshire lass, our featured artist Dawn Hudson, was born and raised in the City of Bradford in northern England. Now living happily in picturesque south Cornwall where she moved with her family some years ago, Dawn says she loves the beauty of the area, but misses the Yorkshire people, hearing their accent and a local staple.

"I especially miss the fish and chips. They just can't make them right in Cornwall. I think I should open a fish and chip shop."

Which would be a shame for the stock clipart market. Her unpretentious designs, particularly the stick figure characters have become popular throughout the industry. The artistry that inspires these charming images is in her genes. Her mum and sister (she also has two younger brothers) are both artistic. "Mum sells her watercolours in the local galleries. She paints local scenes and harbours, which do well with the tourists."

As a teenager Dawn nurtured her burgeoning talent as a student at the Bradford and Ilkley Community College of Art, Design and Textiles. There she did a graphic design course which included her primary subject - illustration. Like so many creative people, however, Dawn soon learned that ability isn't always enough when looking for your place in the workforce. After leaving college and discovering that building a career in the art industry was proving to be a challenge, Dawn took on many different jobs to earn a living, including one at a holiday camp where in down times she did caricatures of her peers. It wasn't until she eventually got a computer, however, that she discovered a whole new way of doing art. The stock clipart sites ultimately opened the door to opportunities for her and she was finally able to support herself, simply doing what she loved.

In order to remain competitive, Dawn goes outside the stock clipart industry to market her work. Besides having several Zazzle stores, which she admits she's had limited time to spend on these days, she has also opened an Etsy store this month and is eagerly looking forward to seeing the results. "It's a completely different way to sell my work to a new audience."

Though art and business combine for Dawn, her images remain light-hearted, evoking a carefree sense of playfulness and cheer. A devout Christian, who has designed many Bible story illustrations, she believes her faith has had an effect on her image creation too. Mostly though, she simply enjoys making people feel happy. "I hope my images make people smile and make the day a bit brighter."

"I just like to doodle about really. When I was a child I used to buy comics and draw the characters. I think that has had a big influence on my overall style. I don't often look at what other artists are doing and I don't tend to follow trends. I just do my own thing and hope that enough people will like it."
