About

I was born in London U.K. and now live in rural Australia in a little town called Moonambel.
Art has been a constant in my life drawing portraits since a child.
As an abstract painter and a mature artist, my work at times expresses my faith, beliefs and life experiences.
When I experiment as I do with each abstract painting, most often the subconscious comes to the surface as Andre Breton the surrealist predicted when he wrote his manifesto about Mark Making.
I am committed to this style of work as well as enjoying Portraiture and Landscape for the relaxation they afford me. When attending the Saatchi Other Art Fair in Melbourne it was great to hear people tell me they loved my work and how sophisticated and elegant they were.
Since living in Moonambel and painting full time, I have won 6 awards, also giving me great encouragement.
My work is found in private collections in America, UK, Italy, Malaysia, Canada, Australia.

Press

Various articles Google. Lands borough news - Dawn is a respected artist whose richly textured and coloured abstract paintings spring from the philosophy of automatism first formulated by Andre Breton, the Dada writer who later founded the Surrealist movement in New York. She strives to allow the impulses of the unconscious to guide her hand allowing her subliminal feelings to be expressed.
