Writer, Fine Artist, Entrepreneur

Dawn Vaz-Green was born April 15, 1947 in Kingston, Jamaica.  She pursued studies at The Ontario College of Art in 1964 but never followed her art career until much later in life.  In the late seventies she opened a craft shop and boutique, “Craftique,” to encourage local craftsmen.  In 1994, she opened “Artworks,” an alternative gallery which promoted leading artisans. Soon after her 50th birthday she began her own painting career and has been painting professionally since then.  Her passion is fantasy surrealism but she is equally adept at painting landscapes and portraits.   Dawn has a strong exhibition record and curated art exhibitions in Jamaica, Trinidad, UK and USA. 


In 2000 Dawn embarked on another career path and wrote ‘Ruby’s Hamwalk,’ – a story of her mother’s childhood in rural Jamaica.  In 2001 she wrote ‘The Magician and the Mouse,’ – a metaphysical fantasy with vibrant learning constructs.  Her latest book, ‘A Passage Through The Valley Of Death’ was inspired by her husbands work in planting the seed of Reverence For Life in Jamaica’s prisons.
