Dawn uses a Panasonic Lumix GH5 camera, a Ricoh Theta SC 360, an iPhone Camera, Polaroid 1000 Land Camera, and Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 and Instax Wide 300 cameras.
She also uses a HP laptop webcam, Apple iMac Photo Booth and a flat bed scanner to take photographs with.
Cross-app images begin their life as a photograph in Photoshop. Gradually these photographs are changed using various iPad apps. The images are crossed over back and forth until the desired effect is obtained. These apps include photography, design and text apps.
Photocopies and printed images of Dawn’s own work and posters bought from shops, are cut up, re-arranged and woven to produced a secondary image.
Dawn draws in a variety of mediums. Her preferred drawing materials are ink, pencil, oil pastels and an Apple Pencil, which can be used in a variety of iPad apps.
A combination of mediums and materials are used to create mixed media artworks. Here Dawn sets her creativity free, allowing textures in her images come to life.
Dawn‘s three dimensional work often evolves from her mixed media artworks. Often layers are built too such an extent, that they can be moulded into three dimensional shapes. Her preferred technique is reuse sculpture. This is a form of recycling where Dawn is reusing objects that have already been manufactured and transforms them into something completely new.
