Dawn Conn

International sculptor, Dawn merges memory, wonder and joy.  Each sculpture has their own narrative and emotional connection, that touch the free spirit in us, most often through memories of childhood.  She is drawn to the times when we lived and played in our own imagination: dressing up, making huts and castles or sometimes just quietly inventing our own worlds.

London trained at the St Martin’s art & design college, Dawn's work is essentially figurative and rooted in human connections.  While the truth of the figure is important to her, she aims to evoke the moment - the energy, the glee, our curiosity, the tenderness in our hearts.  

Her figurative sculptures are looking at the world through the eyes of a child, ‘my figures have developed into tactile memories with distinct themes and unique styles of sculpture; that portray a certain whimsy and unspoken curiosity.’ Her figures develop into tactile memories, that celebrate the beauty of life - and our place within it.  

Dawn’s personal passion is in evidence in her work which is underpinned by a gentle sense of humour and a slightly whimsical take on life which mirrors her own; brimming with adventure, travel, people and places.  Dawn established her sculpture business in Australia in 2011 and relocated back to Europe in early 2016, where she is currently based in Henley-on-Thames.
