Dawn's work is concerned with mark-making, process, and hidden narrative. Exploring themes of transition, growth and containment, she draws reference from both emotional landscape and physical environment. Her textile art works reflect an ongoing experimentation with various print processes and integrate elements of autobiographical experience and current research interests including seascapes and psychotherapy.
