Completed as a fundraiser, she strove to capture portraits that celebrated their unique beauty. All images in the portfolio are available as custom art prints, canvas, metal, greeting cards, and more (https://1-dawn-currie.pixels.com/). A portion of all proceeds will go to the Florida Wildlife Hospital and Sanctuary in Palm Shores, Florida and to the Avian Reconditioning Center in Apopka, Florida.
PSA portfolio distinctions are given for a body of work that reflects a photographer's personal style and photographic interest. The portfolio must be cohesive, reflect the Statement of Intent, and meet high standards for technical quality and visual awareness. Dawn’s Winged Ambassador Portfolio will be showcased at the annual PSA Conference in Salt Lake City, UT this fall (September 30 – October 6), shown on the PSA website, and included in PSA training programs.
The artist, Dawn Currie, exhibits internationally and has won multiple awards. Through her images, Dawn strives to capture the beauty and moments that enrich our daily lives, wherever life my take us.
