My Story

I have loved every minute of my journey in art

Dawn Lim


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.

I have been attending art Lessons from Dawn Lim now for several months. What  I find amazing is her ability to get from me artwork that is truly reflective of a landscape.  I have had no previous art lessons and was very nervous about learning.  Dawns friendly, encouraging manner immediately put nerves to rest. Her passion for art, her quiet praise and ability to take the whole class on this learning journey  is wonderful.  Thank you Dawn,  very much.

The Artist your work (particularly the piece we bought) so reminded us of was Jean-Michel Basquiat. Not figuratively but the same feel and shared technique. Iā€™d be interested if you think so.

I absolutely loved my first lesson today. I was totally amazed by the learning I achieved today and absolutely totally happy with the wonderful painting I got to take home! I would recommend lessons to anyone wanted to have a go to learn some new skills!
