Dawn LaGrave, Photographer

LaGrave Designs/KaleidEscapes | Seattle, WA

Dawn grew up in upstate New York, and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Nutritional Sciences from Cornell University. After working in various healthcare technology positions, she moved to Seattle in 2008 to take such a job, but two years later, that company closed and all its employees were laid off. She decided she was tired of the corporate life, and set out to do something creative with her life.

Having always been the "crafty" type, she played around with several ideas, including premade scrapbooks and handmade journals, until she discovered this kaleidoscope application purely by accident. Before long, she knew she had found her niche. She finds these images so appealing because of her love of geometry, angles and symmetry. They are more than just beautiful abstract images. They offer a different perspective on actual places and things.

Dawn's new creative passion, one she cleverly refers to as "KaleidEscapes", has become one of the most popular "kaleidoscope-inspired" lines of gifts since we expanded our store. Her shadow boxes, trivets and notecards are available in a very wide variety of images, from famous landmarks in Europe and the U.S. to the natural images of fruits, flowers and leaves. She can do custom work as well.
