Dawn undertook nearly a decade long journey of academic art education
(including art and design studies at the Central St Martin’s college in London).
She combined that with an organic and tactile approach to create her own unique artistic style, fusing techniques, mediums, and inspirations.
In 2010, Dawn launched my sculpture business in Australia, returning to Europe in 2016.
Currently based in next to the Waterperry gardens, Oxfordshire.
Dawn's bronze and resin sculptures can be found in private and public collections around the world.
International figurative sculptor Dawn Conn is captivated by the nostalgia of childhood simplicity, ’joie de vivre’ & embracing life. For Dawn, her sculptural process is intuitive – an emotional language, the way she sees the world.
It starts with imagery of personal experiences, feelings, and memories, that aims to evoke the moment – the energy, the glee, our curiosity, the tenderness in our hearts. Dawn’s sculptures draw on my love of figurative expression, embarking on a journey to capture the essence of my figure, inspired by behaviour, stance and character.
Dawn comments, ‘ultimately, I want people to respond to my work with feelings rather than thoughts.’
