Her work can be found at festivals, galleries, museums; in national publications and on broadcast stations; but lives best in forests, train stations, fountains, barns and alleyways in your neighbourhood.
Through inclusive artistic practices, Dawn seeks to interrupt civic and social spaces with unexpected moments of beauty, curiosity and joy.
Her relational interventions hope to offer liberation from everyday suffering and to dismantle barriers between individuals by creating alternative stories that build compassion and kinship.
*Her most recent work, How To Draw a Forest (Trees, Mental Health and Creativity), will result in immersive participatory Audio Walks that wind through an Arboretum in Guelph, Canada, guided by a team of youth with lived experience of mental illness.*
