Born in Manila and calls San Francisco home, Dawn is a concept artist working primarily
in the game industry. For the last 8 1⁄2 years, she’s worked at companies and studios such as
WB Games SF, Kabam, and Zynga doing concepts and illustrations for mobile games.

Previously she had also taught at the Academy of Art University, and has done illustrations for
TCG Card Games, TTRPG covers, and other game industry clients. In her own personal work,
Dawn loves to draw in her sketchbook. Inspired by various media she enjoys in the sci-fi and
fantasy genres, nature from the hikes she takes, various creatures and plant life she sees along
the way and the various species that inhabit natural history museums and science centers she’s
visited over the years.

In the last few years, she’s released 3 printed sketchbooks and various prints chronicling
these sketchbook pages and ink drawings over the years. Aside from art, Dawn thoroughly
enjoys playing learning the ins and outs of her instruments, Guitars, Synths and Bass, climbing,
beering, playing video games, D&D and of course, hiking through mossy northern California
woods and photographing moss covered trees and decaying mushrooms.
