Story by Kelly Caldwell
Shirley Saxson Dawkins loves art. She has since her second-grade teacher put a paint brush in her hand and sparked an interest that has spanned several decades. " I started Taking art when I was about 7 and it really sparked an interest" she said. "It has been a lifelong learning experience for me and it has opened so many doors."
Dawkins has displayed her art at a one-woman show in Talladega, been a participant in the Sarah Carlisle Towery Colony on Lake Martin and many of her works are on display at the Winn Building in Ashland.
