I’m so flattered by all of your kind words! It’s beautifully put together and I can’t thank you enough. It really is a great boost in confidence so early in my career to have people like yourself saying such nice things and really getting my work.”

“Dawn Garcia does with words what so many artists try to accomplish visually. She writes and we instantly see visuals in our minds. She has a rare understanding of art and has a wonderful way of carrying the artist’s message to her readers. She may even see something in my work that I had not yet noticed. I have rarely felt so captivated by worlds written about my own work as I did with her article on me. Many old me it was the most heartfelt article they had read on my work.
I always look forward to reading her next story and feel her outreach should be multiplied to millions of readers.”
Creative Director, Producer, Photographer for Lenny Kravtiz

“Reading A Taste of Dawn is like having lunch with a sophisticated friend who is smarter than you, who knows all the cool kids, and is nice enough to introduce you to them. As a chef, I have to say that I truly enjoy Dawn’s unique take on the world of food, dining and chefs….. she understands both the art and the stagecraft of what we do. If you’re a food lover (and who isn’t?)  she won’t steer you wrong.”

“What a flattering and beautiful review of Rancho Las Lomas! Dawn, I cannot thank you enough for being so generous with your kind words of support. With your unique writer’s style you perfectly captured the essence of how my family and I feel about our little piece of heaven. Everyday we feel blessed when guests, and friends like you, leave the Ranch with lasting and wonderful impressions. No detail was missed nor left off of your written page, except one … we were able to share a special day with you, too. Again, thank you.”

“Very impressed with your review style. Enjoyed reading, as your description really made me feel like I was there. A yelp friend asked me if we’d been to Nirvana, and that’s what got me to reading their reviews. I’m going to bookmark this place for the near future.”
