Dawn has been artistically inclined since the age of four, at which time found herself significantly making observations and changing the way she drew her stick figures into a more formal likeness. It has been a love she never gave up, and it has been her lifeline because of her experience with mental illness. Being self-taught, Dawn agreed when it was suggested to become known as an outsider artist even though her work hasn't exactly fitted with what's expected in an outsider genre. It is highly individual and her best have always come through inspiration. Dawn gained a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1996, later followed by an Honours year in 2008. Her work is a mixture of abstracts which she loves creating for creating sake coming from the heart following the the Dada ideal of Andre Breton,making Marks seeing where they lead her, being subliminal, having subject's which can be personal at times portraying her beliefs or feelings. Dawn also paints landscapes because of her surroundings in the beautiful Pyrenees Shire in which she feels very much at home. and portraits which she had a natural instinct for throughout her childhood, For the past 5 yrs. Dawn has been able to paint full time, winning 7 consecutive awards in the Pyrenees and Wimmera Regions of Victoria Australia. Her work has travelled far and wide to personal collections throughout the world and Australia.
