Since January 2008, Dawn has worked as a printmaker incorporating her background in fiber work to make unique prints that are stitched, quilted and embellished by hand. Today Dawn continues to insist that she is a printmaker although she works almost exclusively in the 3D realm of sculptural fiber art. Dawn’s work is created from fabric, threads, found items and often too many sequins. She incorporates traditional embroidery, printmaking and dyeing techniques in constructing her pieces. Dawn is strongly influenced by natural history, both real and imagined.
Dawn recently moved back to her hometown, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan after living in the United States for 15 years. She is a mom to two kids and a wife to an incredibly supportive husband. She is proud of her prairie roots.
