    It's with an incredibly heavy heart and tears in my eyes that I share the news with you that Dawn Inskip passed away unexpectedly. Her family and our team are brokenhearted at her loss. Dawn was an incredible talent and a caring friend. She was beloved by our team and by this community as well. Her art was truly unique in this industry and I think her heart, her love of her family & God's creatures, shined through in everything she created. As a community, I hope we can all find some beauty in Dawn's lasting legacy. She lives on through her art and the countless memories that have been documented with her designs. More so, she also leaves a legacy of deep friendships with many of you. Dawn was a wonderful person and I know we will all miss her greatly. While her family asked that I share the news publicly about her passing, at this time, they have not made any decisions about her shop. I will update you when they have done so. In the meantime, please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers... they are truly in need of them. This is hard news for our team and community too. Please hold each other close as we grieve our colleague and friend.

    I am so sad and keep shaking my head. Dawn was a wonderful person, talented artist and so creative. Her love for family and friends showed in everything she created and layouts she made. I cherish having known her and will miss her so very much. My heart is very heavy today. Hugs, thoughts and prayers to Dawn's family. Dawn will be sorely missed by all who knew her. I am blessed to have known her and call her my friend.
