Quotable Impressions: Printmaking with Inspired Citations
Dawn Daisley, author

Adult; Spirituality/Inspirational; (Market)

A small book combines quotes from artists, authors, philosophers and cultural icons combined with printmaking to create impressions which have inspired each other. Quotes stimulate, excite, motivate. They touch an emotional pulse point in our soul. Printmaking is a multi-process endeavour and the etchings create magical moments or places.

Don't let the small size fool you.  This book is full of inspiration, both in the quotes cited and the work displayed.  I found myself smiling as I read the words and my eyes lingering as I took in the works of art on each page.

This book is exquisite! Calming and sparse done with rhythm and class. This is the type of book I like to have close by for a few peaceful moments in what can be a hectic life.  Alex Walsh, Photographer Water Surfing

Upon reading your intro I could not help but be struck with how well written and expressive the language used is!!  It truly tapped into the "emotional pulse of MY soul" as you say. The prints!  Wow! I have had the privilege of  seeing you create some of your art work in your studio and experienced the wonder first hand! My favorite print is associated with the quote by Anne Bronte........"But he who dares not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose"   YIKES!!!! so true!!

Keep on bringing us to the point of no return with the Dawn Daisley experiencing!! 

Barbara Brownyard, Author, “Sitting in the Silence”

Dawn Daisley’s works of art and notable quotations mesh together like a perfectly choreographed dance. She has afforded us a peek into her soul. Each print is rich with emotion. The quotes, some known, some not, will give the reader a moments pause.  And then a smile of recognition. ‘She gets it’, the reader will affirm.

This collection of prints re-creates the sensations of peace, tranquility and joy inspired by nature. Dramatic designs, varying dimensions and strong textures complement the thoughtfully chosen quotes. The quotes in turn enhance the beauty of the pieces, can change your mood, and remind us of the magical power of words. A reciprocal relationship of passionate etchings and passionate words have come together to inspire us on each  page.  This lovely little book would make a delightful gift!

Dawn Daisley has created a palpable experience that allows us to see with an artist’s eye and feel with a philosopher’s heart. Her pieces evoke all the beauty of the natural world; the quotes are simple but profound observations about life. Together, they are an invitation to look inward and rediscover what connects us to our environment and perhaps our purpose and place in it. Like life itself, it is both a contemplative exercise and a delightful feast to be savored, one bite at a time.

In this impressive little work, Dawn Daisley matches her vibrant and unique artwork with a selection of well and carefully chosen quotes.
