Dawn Tomlin

An award-winning artist, who works with an array of different mediums to convey her story, often mixing them together and experimenting. With a conceptual approach, her innovative artworks directly respond to the surrounding environment and the people who reside in it. She uses everyday experiences, inner beliefs and interests as a starting point. She approaches a wide range of subjects and themes in a multi-layered way, and believes that the function of an idea is as equally as important as the construction of the work. The strong union they provide will aid the viewer to easily imagine their own interpretation without being hindered by reality. Her works often challenge and tell a story, encouraging the viewer to examine themes that are often taboo such as sex, abuse and mental health.
