Boston born, Denice Dawn’s talents blossomed in childhood through song and art. After receiving a Fine Arts degree from Salem State University, complete with a solo exhibition at the Winfisky Gallery in Boston, she spent fifteen years singing in both Boston-based and New York off-Broadway musical productions (under the name Denice Guanci), painting whatever inspired her, and lifting the hearts and spirits of all who knew her.
After saying goodbye to the bright lights, Denice traveled to the southwestern United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Bali, Thailand, India, Nepal, and beyond. Among her spiritual and cultural inspirations, she spent time with Mother Teresa in Kolkata, India, met the Dali Lama in Tibet, and visited the Taj Mahal. Eventually, she found the aloha spirit of Hawaii was a perfect fit for her heart and settled on Maui.
