As an artist, I seek to combine colour and texture in a manner that inspires self-reflection, yet spontaneity. My work aims to give breath and colour in abstract, yet Daoist style expressions that convey a message of living peacefully and honestly, in harmony with nature. Because of this, art has a spiritual significance to me. In my work, I seek for ways to communicate an intimate moment that will be keenly felt by the audience in a very personal way.
Dawn was born in England in 1949, and migrated to Victoria, Australia as a youth. Early on, she created outsider art that gained enough attention that she decided to invest in an art degree to better refine her style and to fully develop her natural talent. She graduated with her Bachelor of Arts with Honours from Federation University) in 1996. She lives a peaceful life with her husband Chai, in Moonambel, Victoria where she has dedicated herself to her work. She has just moved into Avoca, 16 kms from Moonambel.
Dawn’s art can be found in private collections around the world. In addition to this, her work is on permanent display in the Pyrenees Shire art collection and is currently on display at her studio gallery in Avoca.
