  1. Just a reminder for those who have been sending emails and asking if I will be exhibiting during Dorset Arts week...and why I wasnt in the brochure!. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I had to cancel.  A hard decision to make, however there is always another year!....which means I have more paintings to create and finish!

    I am really looking forward to visiting other artists during Dorset Arts Week this year and hoping to catch up with friends who will be exhibiting their wonderful art work.

  2. Here is a lovely review from one of my recent workshops here in Sunny Devon/Dorset, I happen to live on the borderline only a mile from Lyme Regis, it is a great place to live and work and an especially great place to visit with its inspiring landscape and wonderful Jurassic coastline what could be better than learning a new skill whilst enjoying some good food and a walk along the beach!.

    "Visiting Dawn in her workshop back in March this year was a real treat, in every sense of the word.  The weekend course was given to me for a birthday present from my husband.  Uplyme in Dorset is beautiful and working in Dawn's garden workshop was a very peaceful and interesting to experience.  Dawn took me through everything from the beginners basics of applying molten wax to the substrate to encaustic photograph transfer, engraving, shellac burning to name a few.  Dawn has a true gift in her work with encaustic and she generously gives her workshop attendees her many years of experience and knowledge.

    I have no doubt I shall be back for more at some point in the future.  Thanks Dawn for a truly great course."

  6. Just to confirm that I have been receiving many enquiries for encaustic wax workshops and also my photo-encaustic if you would like further information relating to these classes please feel free to contact me on 07714196584  

    I am inspired by the Jurassic coastline of Devon/Dorset where I live, I am also a keen traveller this year my work has been influenced by my recent trip to Iceland and later this year I will be travelling to Australia where I am sure I will be gathering inspiration for my next project.  I am a keen photographer and work from both sketch books, memory and images which I have collected from my journeys of exploration.
