Dawn Tomlin

Artist Statement

Dawn Tomlin has a conceptual approach to her art and she sees herself as “an observer and recorder” of modern life. 

Her innovative artworks directly respond to her surrounding environment and the people who reside within it.

She approaches a wide range of subjects using her everyday experiences, the experiences of others, and her inner beliefs and interests as a starting point. Her works often challenge and tell a story, they encourage the viewer to examine themes that are often taboo such as domestic violence, abuse and mental health.

Dawn works with a variety of media and techniques. Her preferred techniques are photography, cross-app design, mixed media, paper-mache, creative reuse and ink drawings.
