Featured Artist Dawn Scoffield

Dawn Scoffield was born and raised in Colorado, growing up along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the town of Arvada.  Her parents had a dairy farm in the early years of her life.  Her parents purchased a farm in Townsend, and moved the family in 1975.  Dawn stayed in Colorado to finish high school, moving to Townsend in the summer of 1977.  She has had many jobs in our community, but she may be remembered most for her positon as a Clerk/Postmaster Relief, at the local Post Office.  She retired in 2013 after 34 years of service.  She has been married to her husband Scott, a fifth generation resident of Broadwater County, for the past 39 ½ years.  They have raised four children, and have been blessed with 3 grandchildren.  Dawn is currently the babysitter for two of her grandchildren, she is a faith filled Christian, and a member of the Trailhead Christian Church,  she loves spending time with family, and friends, and enjoys any opportunity to golf.

Dawn’s love of art started in the fourth grade, with a very influential art teacher.  She has taken workshops from well-known Montana artists, Carol Novotne, Marilyn Beth Hughes, Jack Hines, Jessica Zemsky, and Patty Rambo.  Her favorite mediums are watercolor, oil and pencil, and she has no favorite subject matter.  Her art has been shown in the Holter Museum of Art in Helena Mt., the State Bank of Townsend (currently Opportunity Bank), American Federal Savings and Loan, the Broadwater Hospital, and her art is on the cover of the book, “The Dish Water Tree,” written by local author, Angela Janacaro.  She has taught art for the After School Summer Art Camp, in 2015, and several ‘Sip and Paints’ in Bozeman MT., and also in Townsend.
