Dawn is a self taught mixed media painter, living and working in London.
She was born in 1981 in Barbados and emigrated to Preston, Lancashire. She has a BA in Design from The John Cass School of Art, London Metropolitan University.
Dawn’s work explores a passion for surface quality, colour and texture, focusing on the idea of forgotten still life. Her paintings are developed slowly over time without plan, by using images compiled from a range of media and everyday objects.
She is a mixed media artist, whose work encompasses painting, printmaking and collage. Through her work she is attempting to explore the relationship between everyday often forgotten objects, their owners and the experiences that might have influenced their purchase.
